Response from Dr. Frascino
YIKES, that sounds like an STD algebra equation! Don't make things so complicated! What you need to know is that if you placed yourself at risk for HIV (unprotected sex or sharing HIV drug paraphernalia), you need to get an HIV test three months following the date of your last potential exposure. No matter who Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds slept with. By the way, Lucy is an odd name for a guy. Does it stand for something? Lucifer for instance?
