questions about possible contagion
May 31, 2014
15 days ago I had anal sex with an HIV-infected prostitute without protection, hard act just 1 minute, but I need to know if I have a high risk of being infected, and what are my chances and hopes of not being caught, thanks!
Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello there Having unprotected insertive anal sex with an hiv Positive partner would definitely put you at risk of HIV. Your risk would be less if she was on HIV medications and had an undetectable viral load but that is unlikely to be data that you have. Given that you are 15 days out, PEP is not an option so I would recommend testing at 4 weeks or sooner if you were to develop any symptoms of acute antretroviral syndrome. Take care, LHW
