Can a woman who underwent hysterectomy get AIDS from unprotected sex?

Apr 5, 2002

Can a woman who have had a hysterectomy get AIDS as a result of having unprotected sex with an HIV positive partner?

Response from Mr. Kull

Having a hysterectomy (the removal of the uterus) does not decrease your risk for HIV infection, since the mucous membranes of the vagina would still be exposed to potentially infected fluids.
