HIV from someone uninfected??

Feb 4, 2013

Hello, If I had sex with another male and his HIV blood test 6 months following our sex was negative, there's no way I could have contracted HIV from him right? You can't get HIV from someone who doesn't have it can you? He couldn't be a carrier or have HIV virus in his foreskin right? It was only one episode of sex. It was my first and only time doing anything sexual and the exposure was protected receptive anal, unprotected oral, giving and taking, and mutual masturbation and deep kissing.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

That is correct. You cannot catch HIV from someone who does not have it.

In health,


Worried and confused about test results
What constitutes transmission?
