possible?
Jun 15, 2007

is it possible to have anal sex with an infected person (all he did was put it in and pull it right back out) and not get infected?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

Yes, very definitely, it is.

The estimated per-act risk for acquiring HIV from unprotected receptive anal sex with a partner confirmed to be HIV positive is 50 per 10,000 exposures. And that includes the whole "Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Ma'am," not just a single in-and-out!

That said, however, I still recommend routine HIV screening.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
