Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Croatian Living in Oz,

Repeatedly negative HIV-antibody tests out to 12 weeks following protected sex with a hooker is considered definitive, conclusive and WOO-HOO-able. I agree with the advice you received from the physician at the Adelaide STD clinic: HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted.

You report: "My problem is I do not believe the tests . . . ." BINGO! I agree this is indeed your problem. You have overwhelming and irrefutable evidence you are HIV negative, but you don't believe it. Consequently I agree you should seek counseling (psychotherapy) to help you accept the truly wonderful news that you are HIV negative!

Dry up those tears! You should be WOO-HOO-ing, not worrying!

Donation information for The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at Thanks for your desire to help others in need. In return I'm sending you my good-luck karma that you are now and will always be HIV free!

Be well. Stay well.

Dr. Bob
