Response from Dr. Conway

Insertive anal intercourse, especially if a condom is not used, carries a significant risk of HIV transmission, perhaps 1% or so if the person with whom you were having sex is actually HIV infected. The fact that your test was negative after 5 weeks is reassuring, but you need to await the result of the 3 month test to be sure you have not become infected with HIV. This will be the definitive result.
