regards from india

HIV is a hard virus to transmit, moreso from a female to a male, besides the condom offered some protection!Testing is warrented and a 12 week test shoul;d suffice. The risk of acquiring HIV from unprotected intercourse with a confirmed HIV positive individual is somewhere between 0.1-0.2%


Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi

why is it so hard to transmit from female to male? .1 percent. that's great odd's. but it sure doesn't tale away the fear. thanks ravi for your response.

1 reason its easier for HIV to be transmitted from male to female is because a female has a bigger area to be infected. So when a positive man ejaculates she is practically unprotected and exposed. For men its harder because they need an open sore, an existing STD or for her fluids to get in his urethra opening. You also have to take into consideration her infection level at the time. Hope this helps. Good luck.
