I need to know

Apr 22, 2007

I'm HIV+ I had sex with a guy that said he is HIV-. I penetrated him (non protected), I don't precum, and I didn't ejaculate inside him. I'm also non-detectable is there a chance that I may have infected this guy. I felt so bad we went to get tested he came back negative what should I do?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Unprotected sex, even without ejaculation, is indeed a risk for HIV transmission. Not ejaculating, having an undetectable viral load and not being a pre-cummer may decrease the chances of transmission, but they certainly do not eliminate them.

What should your partner do? He needs to get an HIV test three months after your commando horizontal mattress-mambo. Because he had a significant exposure (unprotected receptive anal sex with someone documented to be HIV positive), the CDC also recommends he get a confirmatory test at the six-month mark to confirm his negative status. Your partner also needs to better understand the risks of unprotected sex!

What should you do? First and most importantly, you need to never again place a partner at risk for acquiring HIV. Next, you should take the opportunity to teach your partner how and why he needs to be safe.
