Trumps symptoms

Feb 19, 2010

Hi Dr Bob, Just a quicky. You say a test out of the window trumps symptoms each and every time. Is this a US standard or applicable everywhere? My risk was with a African CSW and I was tested a couple of years out of the window period in the UK.

Response from Dr. Frascino


The testing standard applies universally. Barring extremely unusual circumstance, your negative HIV-antibody test "a couple years" from your last horizontal mattress mambo with a Naughty Lady from Shady Lane would be considered definitive, conclusive and WOO-HOO-able.
