| Response from Ms. Southall
Hi The risk is small but there is a risk. Is your boyfriend on treatment? If so and his viral load is undetectable the risk of HIV transmission is reduced dramatically, but not completely. Accidents happen, glad you came to your senses and stopped. Your risk again is very small for transmission but because there was a small amount of time there is a small amount of risk and getting tested is a good thing to do. This not just for this experience but everyone should know their status.
Your overall risk is extremely low.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
