Response from Dr. Frascino


Your decision to put yourself at risk for STDs, including HIV, by having unprotected anal receptive sex with an HIVer was extremely unwise and potentially catastrophic! Fortunately you did not contract HIV. Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to six months are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted (for this exposure). I do sincerely hope this experience served as a wakeup call and learning experience and that you'll never put yourself at risk again. If one continues to play sexual Russian Roulette, eventually he will lose!
