|SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT AN EXPOSURE IN 1984
Feb 18, 2000
THANK YOU FOR TAKING MY QUESTION. ABOUT 16 OR 17 YEARS AGO I HAD UNPROTECTED SEX WITH A PROSTITUTE AND I AM WORRIED THAT I MIGHT BE INFECTED WITH HIV. I HAVE NEVER BEEN TESTED AND HAVE HAD NO SYMPTOMS. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING POSITIVE. I HAVE BEEN MARRIED AND COMPLETELY FAITHFUL TO THE SAME WOMEN FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS. I AM SCHEDULED TO BE TESTED FOR A LIFE INSURANCE POLICY AND I AM TERRIFIED. THANK YOU

The odds that you are infected are infinitesimally small. You can get tested at an anonymous test site first if you are worried about the insurance exam.
