chances of contrcting hiv during protected sex

Dec 29, 2012

What is the risk of hiv transmission??...vaginal intercourse with a male of unknown status; latex condom was used, it did not break, and he pulled out before ejaculating.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi A condom protects you against HIV, not 100% but very close to it. You would not be someone we would recommend testing for if this was your only exposure. Though we do encourage anyone who has ever had sex to be tested at least once a year to know their status.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
