(i dont know where) waiting for your "no way, no how".. hopefully! take care dr robert.. your big fan J.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Big Fran Peruvian J.,

Insertive oral sex carries only a very slight risk for HIV acquisition. Protected oral sex would carry essentially no risk assuming the latex condom was used properly and did not break. When a latex condom breaks, it's usually very dramatic. If you didn't notice a rupture, chances are excellent the condom remained intact.

As for HIV testing, your negative HIV test at 48 (or 50) days is very encouraging; however, not conclusive. You'll have to wait for the three-month mark to get a definitive result. From what you've told me I have no doubt the result will be negative.

Thank you for your donation to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation. Donation information can be found on the foundation's Web site at

Be well.

Dr. Bob
