unprotected vaginal sex
Feb 14, 2013

Is sexual encounter transient can transmit AIDS?

Response from Dr. Wohl

Vaginal sex is actually the leading mode of HIV transmission worldwide. In Africa, the proportion of men infected with the virus is approximately the same as that among women and heterosexual sex is predominant risk activity.

Certainly, the longer the exposure, the greater the risk.
