May 24, 2013
i had sex with my girl friend in the time of period (period sex) without using condom. the girl and me both are hiv negative.is there any risk of HIV and STD?
| Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello there- If both you and your partner are both indeed HIV -negative then there is no risk of transmission whether your girlfriend is menstruating or not. Certainly if hiv status is not sure, condoms would be recommended and transmission could be increased in the presence of menstruation. Take care, LHW
