HIV through anal sex

Mar 1, 2012

I just had unprotected sex anally. I came and when i pulled out, there was very very little feces and no blood. Is there a high chance i've contracted HIV? I don't know the other person's status. Like i said, there was no blood when i pulled out.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Was there a risk in this situation? The answer is certainly yes. Anytime you have unprotected penetrative sex there is a risk. Was it a high one? Considering it was a one-time incident and you were the penetrative partner, the chances are probably pretty low that transmission would have occurred, but it was a risk none the less.

Using a condom for each and every act of penetrative sex is the best way to protect yourself against HIV and many STD's. I would making condom use a routine part of your sexual practices. An antibody test at the three month mark will give you an accurate result.

In health,
