Response from Dr. Frascino
Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to 16 weeks are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.
If you are worried about other STDs, your doctor or the student health clinic can easily screen you for them.
As far as your platelet count is concerned, 180 thousand is completely normal.
Good luck. Be well.
