Stamp my woohoo, homeboy.

Jul 1, 2009

Hi Dr Bob,

briefly, I had sex with a Brazilian escort (not a street hooker) in the UK. I pulled out the condom and it had blood on it. Condom was fine, not broken. Carefully took the condom off, and had her blood on my hands.

10 mins later I noticed a bleeding cut on my finger - I'm not sure if it was present when I touched her blood.

Please assess my risk (HIV counsellor said it was low). I had a rapid test at 6 weeks, and I know you stick to the 3 month rules, but based on the fact I am using a very reliable test (Abbott Determine) and the apparent low risk, can I put this one to bed?

Thanks dawggg

Response from Dr. Frascino


I agree with your HIV counselor that your HIV risk was low, at best. However, you are correct: I still recommend a test at three months if you want a definitive test result. So as much as I'd like to "stamp" you, this dawgy won't bark until he's sure. Yeah def.

Dr. Homeboy

Just broke up with my positive partner, some advice please
Thank for answering - "Too many exposures at the same time - humble request"
