Oh my god...
Feb 10, 2003

Dear Doctor Sullivan..

Three months ago I had sex with a prostitute (I don't know her status, but let's think that she is VIH+), I used double condom but it broke (I think). I don't had symptoms (ARS).

a) Am I infected ? b) Should I be tested ? c) Am I in a high - risk level? d) Which is the rate of transmision female - male ? e) Are the women in more risk than the men? Why ? f) Is more common female - male transmission than male - female ?

Thanks Doctor.

Response from Dr. Sullivan

If you have any concern about being infected you should ask your physician for a HIV test or seek out an anonymous HIV testing site;JLS.
