what if it has been two years since sleeping with a carrier of hiv. what are my chances of being infected?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Chances of being infected depends entirely on if the sex involved penetration and whether it was protected.

If it's been two years, that means you can get a HIV test now that will tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt what your status is.

Hope this helps,
