Condom breaks

Apr 30, 2012

What are the chances of getting the virus if the condom breaks but we catch it when it breaks ande the person is,positive.

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- It is impossible to say the chances based on just knowing that you caught condom after it broke. What I would say is that unprotected sex with a positive person is a risk for HIV.

Take care,


Very scared, do I have ARS
grapefruit and atripla
