HIV Anxiety Support User Group
Chances of contracting hiv
About This Group:

This support group is for those who are suffering from stress or anxiety associated with uncertain HIV status. HIV anxiety is extremely isolating for those who are going through it, as it is often very difficult to discuss with friends and family members. This group is provided for sufferers of HIV anxiety to discuss their fears in a supportive environment. Those with anxiety over non-HIV STDs are also welcome. For personal advice concerning HIV risk, testing, and prevention, please post in the HIV Prevention Community.

Okay, here is a breakdown of your risk:

1. Stripper was using condoms. Most likely this was because she is HIV negative and wants to protect herself from her customers.

2. In general, most strippers 99% don't have HIV. The likelihood that any stripper has HIV is no more than 1 in 100.

3. This stripper tested negative. This means that she would have had to have caught HIV in the past 4-6 weeks. The odds of that are probably 1 in a million.

4. The vast majority of exposures to HIV infected people do not result in infection. The average frequency of transmission has been estimated at 1 in 1000.

5. You were protected up to the point the condom broke.

When you combine all of this, the chance that you have HIV is vanishingly small. Your exposure barely registers as a risk. Test at 6 weeks and again at 3 months, but expect negative results.

Last thing. When is someone the most infectious to give hiv to there partner. Is it during the window period when the person tests negative? Thanks for taking your time. Thank you A lot.

The first few weeks after infection. But that is irrelevant.

So is it during the window period when the person tests negative on a HIV test or when a person tests positive

This thread is OVER. The window period is IRRELEVANT because the chance that your partner is in the window period is effectively ZERO.
