I need your help

Feb 26, 2014

Dr. Bob please help me free my mind of HIV infection. I had an insertive vaginal intercourse with a lady I hardly know. And am in my 4 week now and I have not experienced any ARS symptoms except some mild headaches which comes for hours and leave usually 4-6 hours. Could this a sign of HIV infection.

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there If you engaged in unprotected vaginal sex you could be at risk for HIV transmission with or without experiencing any ARS symptoms. I would suggest testing now, at 4 week most Ab tests or Ag/AB tests are very accurate. Take care DR W
