My girlfriend and I have both never been with anyone else, shared needles, or done anything else that may suggest that we have HIV. Should we be worried about getting it by sleeping with each other?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
I know of no case of HIV infection as a result of woman-to-woman sex, and if both of you have no risks for HIV, then you have no need to worry.
