Response from Ms. Southall

HI You had unprotected sex, no matter the brevity of the exposure it was unprotected. You also put yourself at risk of all of the other sexually transmitted infections. Your best bet is to receive a complete screening for not just HIV but all of the other STI's. Your risk of getting HIV is small but there is a risk. It is small because it is difficult for women to pass the virus onto men, but it is possible and having unprotected sex increases that risk.

The guidelines for testing is to be initially tested at 3 weeks and then again at 90 days. If during that time there is no other exposure and the test comes back HIV negative than so are you.

Be well and wear condoms!!!
