Risk of Hiv from anal insertion

Jun 28, 2013

I was at a gay bathouse last night and accidentally inserted my penis into a guy's anus for a few seconds. I am worried... should I consider PEP?

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- I'm wondering how one accidentally does this, but I digress. The risk would be low given the extremely limited time your penis was in contact with said anus but I can't say the risk is nil. Take care, LHW
