HEMOPHILIA AND HIV INFECTION IN ABSOLUTELY HETEROSEXUAL MAN
Nov 24, 2001
DEAR DOC. I AM STRICTLY HETEROSEXUAL MAN OF 43 YEARS OLD, I WAS DETECTED HIV + 2 WEEKS AGO IN A ROUTINE EXAMINATION BEFORE MARRIED, I AM AFRAID TO HAVE CONTRACTED HIV VIRUS IN 1999 HAVING UNPROTECTED SEX WITH A FEMALE DOCTOR, SHE TOLD ME SHE WAS PERFECT. LATER, LAST YEAR I DISCOVERED THAT SHE USED DRUGS AND SUFFERED OF HEMOPHILIA. IS THAT THE CAUSE OF MY INFECTION? THANKS F.C.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Her history might have put her at risk for HIV infection and in turn that is how you got infected. MH
