Hello Dr. Bob. First and foremost, I just want to tell you how great I think you are and the wonderful work you do here! I've been reading all your answers to others for quite some time and hope I too can get an answer from you and move on with my life. I have been worried sick and I know my 'symptoms' may be and hopefully ARE psychosomatic, but I would like to know if I need to be worried. So here's my question: Can I definitely woo-hoo after 2 noreactive elisa tests, one at a 2 1/2 year and another again on a 3 year mark, after a risky exposure? Should I take another test of some kind?

Response from Dr. Frascino


I have just one word for you: WOOOO-HOOOO! Or does that count as two words? Either way, HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted.

Be well.

Dr. Bob
