possibility of converting to positive.
Apr 10, 2003

What is the percentage of converting from negative at 3 months to positive at 6 months for a healthy white male who only had one encounter with a female, but used a polyurathane condom?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Questions like this need to be posted to our Safe sex and HIV Prevention Forum. This forum is reserved for folks already confirmed to be HIV positive. OK?

Lets start with a more basic question: "Whats the percentage of someone seroconverting following a single episode of protected (polyurethane condom) sex?" The answer is zip. Thats right. Assuming the condom was used properly, the chances are zero, zilch, nada. Now, Ill bet you can answer that 3 versus 6-month question all by yourself, cant you? If not re-submit it to the Safe Sex forum.
