Response from Dr. Frascino


Your HIV-acquisition risk is essentially nonexistent. Your symptoms are not worrisome for HIV acute retroviral syndrome. I see absolutely no reason to postpone your marriage. However, you may well benefit from treatment of your anxiety and HIV fears. Psychotherapy and/or anti-anxiety medication may help.

Thanks for your support of The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation ( It's warmly appreciated. Best of luck with your upcoming walk down the aisle.
