Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Oral sex has been and remains a low-risk activity. I would not be concerned about incidences of oral sex, nor do I recommend testing in cases such as yours. However, you can get an accurate HIV test at the 90 day mark. Your 12 and 17 week test were conclusive. You are negative. Your PKD would not affect the outcome of your test. If your other symptoms persist, I would suggest a visit to your doctor to rule out other possible causes.

In health,
