Will taking Propecia (1mg) will affect my hiv test results?


Dr Bob,

Please help. I have tested negative after waiting 3 months, however, can you please tell me if taking Propecia (1mg for hair loss) will affect my test results.

I have been very worried that I can not safely woo-hoo.

Hello Worried Canook,

Whether your Propecia has been a failure (like Dr. Phil's) or a success (like Howard Stern's), it will not affect your HIV test results! So it's WOO-HOO to you!

Stay well. Try a little hair gel for a spikier look. It works for me.
