i smelled hiv charged farts... help!

Sep 9, 2009

there wasnt any odor, but i know i inhaled them, i know inhalation is a route of medicine administration, so it does gets to your bloodstream, the other reason is that i have a weak immmune system so that increases my chances of contracting the virus, (i have a masters of public health) i dont want to wait 3 months, is PCR recommended? thanks wonderful dr. bobby... Linda

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Linda,

You have a master's degree in public health and you're worried that you may have contracted HIV because you smelled odorless HIV-charged farts????? Tell me Linda, where did you get that public health master's diploma? EBay perhaps???

Linda, let's you and I think this through, OK? If HIV were transmitted by airborne farts, wouldn't everyone who has dinner in a Mexican restaurant be infected? I mean come on; those refried beans can generate enough combustible gas to launch the space shuttle, right?

So relax Linda. HIV is not transmitted via farts, fragrant or otherwise.

Dr. Bob

this is really weird... i need your opinion (THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION WAS IN THE ARCHIVES!)
When can I sleep again?
