What's the chances of HIV

Apr 28, 2012

I had protected intercourse but was playing with her vagina and sucking with her fingers that had been in her vagina it was not until morning that we realised she had started her period is there a chance of catching HIV , a week and a bit later I had 4 nights of bad night sweats and a week after that I have a bit of a sore throat I'm worried sick now with fear I have caught it

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Protected vaginal sex gives you protection from HIV transmission. The other activities you described will not increase your risk as long as you had no openings, cuts or sores in your mouth and if she has HIV and her viral load is very high. Not knowing her status, is HIV transmission possible, yes, is it probable NO. The symptoms you describe can come from many things, you could just have a cold. If you continue to be concerned about your HIV status the best thing to do is get tested!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
