Advise Please-Part 2

Aug 30, 2009

Sir i respect your dedication to help anxiety driven souls like me and i am going do my part by donating to your noble cause

thanks for answering my earlier question but when i took my condom, i cleaned the penis with the tissue, do you think by accidently rubbing the vaginal fliuds i might be infected.

i am getting burning sensation under my arms and throat, chest, its 27 days are this symptoms of ARS?

Thanks again Doc and keep the good work

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your HIV-acquisition risk is essentially nonexistent. Your symptoms are not consistent with HIV acute retroviral syndrome (ARS). If my reassurance is not sufficient for you to shake your worries, get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. The results will undoubtedly be negative.

Be well. Continue to play safe and you'll stay safe.

Dr. Bob

HIV positive or not?! Scared Mom of 4 kids. Help me.
Starting to question my Woohoo moment.....
