question about unprotected sexual exposure
      #159944 - 09/13/05 10:28 AM

Question: If I had unprotected sex several times with someone who could possibly have been exposed to HIV (I'm not sure if he was ever tested) and he pulled out before ejaculation, do you think I still have a great chance of getting HIV if he does indeed have the disease? I recently tested positive for HPV and I am worried that I got this from him and that now my chances for having HIV have greatly been increased. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks everyone, this forum is very informative!

P.s. I just went today to get tested for HIV (it has been 6 months since the last sexual incounter with him), so i'm really bugging out right now!!!

There IS a risk of infection through unprotected sex even if there's no ejaculation. Precum contains the virus, though in smaller quantities than semen.

That said, don't "bug out" yet. You don't know that your partner was positive, and the presence of HPV does not indicate that HIV is also present.

Hi, just wanted to follow up on my post last month - I found out that I DO NOT have HIV! I still have to live with HPV but I have definitely learned a great lesson in making sure I ALWAYS wear a condom - it's not worth all the worrying! Thanks SteveR
