Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello "Finnish 25-Year-Old Teenager,"

Unprotected sex does place you at some degree of risk for STDs, including HIV. However, your negative HIV-antibody tests out to 12 weeks are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.

Whatever is causing your symptoms, one thing is certain: It's not HIV! Your symptoms sound more like anxiety than HIV! Have your general medical doctor evaluate any persistent symptoms. Remember, HIV is not your problem!

Donation information for the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at Thank you for you interest in helping those in desperate need.

Good luck. Stop worrying and start WOO-HOOing.

Dr. Bob

final follow up (My Dr. is being ridiculous and now advising I have a C-section based on inconclusive results.)
