Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

You did "anual"??? OK, if you say so.

Because you had a significant HIV exposure (broken condom incident with a partner confirmed to be HIV infected), the current guidelines recommend HIV-antibody testing at both the three- and six-month marks. Your negative three-month result is extremely encouraging.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
