Will Donate 200$ ASAP, Please Answer Oral Fear
Dec 5, 2010

Had unpro oral sex with female partner 53 day, both gave & received. I ejac in her mouth as well. No vag/anal sex was done in this encounter. I am in fear and went outside my marriage with his female. I asked her and she said she was HIV free but I was still in doubt. So I have gotten these tests: 7 day STD panel, NEG 14 day DNA PCR HIV, NEG 21 day finger prick rapid, NEG 28 day finger prick rapid NEG 35 day oral swab rapid, NEG 42 days lab blood test LABCORE, NEG 52 days rapid blood test NEG

At this time I contacted the female in this encounter and had her tested via rpaid blood test at 7 weeks which was NEG. Please tell me your opinion if further testing is needed?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

The published guidelines state that HIV-antibody tests taken prior to the three-month mark are not considered definitive. However, taken in total, your repeatedly negative HIV-antibody tests out to day 52 plus your undetectable DNA PCR at day 14 plus the negative seven-week rapid test performed on your partner are, in my opinion, definitive. It's also worth nothing your HIV-acquisition risk, unprotected oral sex, is very low. Certainly if you wish to retest at the three-month mark to have the guidelines' level of assurance of your negative status, that option is always open to you. I'm absolutely confident the result would once again be negative.

Thanks for your support of The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org). It's warmly appreciated during this holiday season.

Be well!

Dr. Bob
