Am I at risk

Nov 30, 2014

I have hit a HIV positive person with a fist and he ended up bleeding and I noticed I had a smal cut on my fist and it was bleedind .... I was immidiately put on PEP ..... what are my rist levels

Response from Mr. Cordova

If the person was undetectable the risk would be fairly non-existent. Also, transmission via an incident like this would be fairly low. The addition of PEP tells me that there was no transmission in this situation.

In health,


HIV risk???
HIV symptoms?
