Response from Dr. Frascino


You had an encounter with a couple of prostitutes and didn't even remove your trousers??? Gosh, I hope you got a refund.

Relax Max. Boob sucking, body kissing, trying (unsuccessfully) to kiss a vagina and touching a vagina "for a brief moment" without cuts on your fingers are not risks for acquiring HIV. Your HIV risk is essentially nonexistent. I can't diagnose the cause of your various symptoms over the Internet. However, what I can do is advise what is not causing them: It's not HIV. No way. No how. I see absolutely no cause for concern or consideration for HIV testing. Your fears are unwarranted. If my reassurance is not enough to put your unwarranted worries permanently to rest, consider consulting a licensed mental health professional to help you confront and conquer your irrational HIV fears.

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

Good luck. Be well.

Dr. Bob

Can high stress/anxiety affect HIV test results?
