If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
I did something stupid--I had unprotected vaginal sex with my ex-boyfriend last night. In February of this year, he tested negative for HIV and I also tested negative. However, we have been broken up since March and I know he has been with other women and I have no idea if he used protection wtih them. I have seen all kinds of statistics as far as transmission rates from male to female and don't know what to believe. If he happened to become HIV positive in the last six months, what is my likelyhood that I got infected? I thank you for your help.
I'm sorry if I am bothering you, I am just freaking out. I know you get this a lot. But I see so many statistics out there on transmission rates (yes, I know the best thing to do is to get tested, and I will) but if he tested negative and I tested negative in February, and lets' assume he had unprotected sex with other women and one was HIV positive, how likely is it that he would contract the virus? I really appreciate what you do, in helping people who have anxiety over this issue.
