It took time and a lot of courage for Charlie Sheen to announce that he was HIV-Positive.

Dr. Mehmet Oz had a chance to catch up with the actor after his Today show interview, and told Entertainment Tonight that Sheen was "very cleansed from the conversations he had this morning.

"He was under a lot of stress," Oz continued.  

"He’s been in such a dark place, and depressed. He let the truth ring today. Much more centered in his thoughts." 

Yesterday, Oz had Sheen’s physician, Dr. Robert Huizenga on his show along with Sheen’s ex-girlfriend, Amanda Bruce.

Unprotected sex with Sheen has been a hot topic since yesterday, and Bruce confirmed that she and Sheen opted not to use a condom at times, despite knowing that he was HIV-Positive.

Bruce consulted with Dr. Huizenga about the risks of unprotected sex, who insisted she use protection, even though the odds of transmission was low.

"I was the doctor for her boyfriend, we called in other doctors and they felt the risk of transmission if she took the prophylaxis and he had undetectable level was miniscule, "Huizenga explained.

"We can’t say it’s zero.

"And so basically I think my advice to her was, ‘Don’t do it, but the risk is miniscule.’ And she elected to then go forward because she felt so close and wanted that level of intimacy."

Other ex-girlfriends of Sheen claim he wasn’t up front about his health when they had unprotected sex, and some women even plan to sue.
