can it be possible to get hiv infevted in sex of 30 seconds

Aug 4, 2011

is it possible to be infected with a sex of few seconds say a maximum of 30 sec.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Unprotected sex, even very brief unprotected sex, results in some degree of risk for STDs, including HIV. Certainly if the potential exposure were extremely brief, the HIV-transmission risk would be decreased, but it would not be completely eliminated.
