Only 3 ways to get HIV?
      #233650 - 11/18/07 03:38 AM


I always use condoms. However, I've read various stories on the net from HIV positive people who claim to have axquired HIV through acts other than unprotected sex. This worried me a litte.

All my research and all the medical advice I have gathered to date suggests that there are only 3 days to get HIV:
- UNPROTECTED vaginal or anal sex;
- oral sex with BLEEDING and GUSHING wounds in the mouth
- shared IV drug use

Is that really it? Is it just that simple? Naturally, accidents like blood transfusions, oragn transplants etc are excluded.
