High risk?
      #1305 - 04/01/00 05:10 PM

I know that unprotected sex is a "high risk" activity for getting AIDS. But what is exactly meant by "high risk?" Is it over 50% chance?
75%? I have been having unprotected sex with my new girlfriend for a
few weeks now. Can I assume that IF she is HIV positive that I have contacted it or have a very high likelihood (like over 75%+) that I have?

Well pal, high risk is just that, a high risk. There are no percentages as how high is a high risk. It depends on the individuals and many specific details about EVERYTHING (and I really mean everything) and even having that, there wouldn't be a way to have a percentage. However, if you are drunk and drive, there is a high risk of you causing an accident. Try to visualize it like that.
