Why do Heterosexuals get infected ?
Aug 4, 1999
If men are at lower risk of getting HIV than women when a hetero couple have sex why do we so many heterosexual men contract HIV ? I can understand why many women contract HIV but why the men ?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
I suspect that some of it relates to whether these men are truly hetero or bisexual, and whether injection drug use is a risk factor. MH
