Do I have AIDS?
Q: I met a prostitute four years back. She insisted upon a condom so I started pushing my penis but after 15 to 20 strokes I removed my penis just to adjust the condom. To my surprise the condom was ruptured so I immediately removed my organ and rushed to the toilet and cleaned it with water and passed urine. There was no cut or blood on my penis. After 2 weeks or so I tested for DNA PCR test in RANBAXY Mumbai and report was within normal limits, what does it mean? Am I free from HIV/AIDS?
A:The episode occurred four years back, have you had yourself tested again? A conventional ELISA test at this time will give you definitive answers. However from the information you provided in your letter, I think you have been fortunate and are not infected. If you still have any doubts get another test and then believe the result! Please keep in mind for the future that one cannot depend on condoms for absolute safety so think carefully before you put yourself at risk!
