Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Your overal risk of HIV transmission is extremely low. First there is no risk in kissing. As for your sexual encounter, Condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off. The vaginal secretions do not pose a risk by just coming in to contact with your genitals, as long as there were no sores or open areas on those areas. As for testing, the guidelines are to be tested intially at 3 weeks post exposure and then again at 90 days, as long as there are no possible exposures during this time, the results are conclusive. But again your risk of HIV transmission is extremely low. You did what you needed to do to protect yourself.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
