please help me doctor, I'll donate $100

May 10, 2011

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your HIV-acquisition risk is essentially nonexistent. Protected sex is indeed protected, assuming the latex condoms were used properly and didn't fail (break). HIV cannot permeate intact latex. No way. No how.

PEP was not warranted and I urge you to discontinue it. If you remain worried, get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark primarily to gain psychological peace of mind. I'm absolutely confident the result will be negative.

Thanks for your support of The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation ( It's warmly appreciated. In return I'm sending my good-luck/good-health karma that you are now and will forever be HIV free!

Good luck. Be well.

Dr. Bob
