Please Help :(

Jul 29, 2009

Hello dear Dr Frascino,

How are you? I hope you will answer my question. I asked you questions before but you did not answer. I hope this time you will answer....

I am from Turkey and had a brief relationship 102 days ago. I took tests on 58 and 95 day mark. What are you opinions about my test results? Do you think that these test results are conclusive? Should I consider taking an other test?

I plan to marry next year. I do not want to infect anyone, especially my future wife. Do you think that there is no problem and I can marry considering these test results or should I keep away from marriage through out my entire life?

I am really sorry about what I did L I should I have never done that. I ruined my life. Now I found a nice lady and we plan to marry. How sad is this that I cannot think of how good is marriage because of the lingering thought of HIV on my mind. I even do not kiss my girlfriend because of this fear inside me. What if I infect her?

Please help dr, please. What shoud I do?

Result of the test at day 95: Test Name : HIV-1/HIV-2 Antibody (EIA) Result : Negative 0,18 S/CO

Negative < 1

VDRL test result at day 95 : negatif

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Turkey-guy,

Your negative HIV ELFA tests out to day 95 are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV testing is warranted. Take a read through the archives of this forum. We have whole chapters devoted to HIV tests, HIV sexual transmission and related topics that you should find both enlightening and reassuring.

My advice is simple:

1. Stop worrying. HIV is not your problem!

2. Yell WOO-HOO.

3. Kiss your sweetie!

4. Put those wedding plans into high gear without fear!

Be well.

Dr. Bob
