      #97350 - 05/03/04 04:29 PM

if i (male) had unprotected sex with a woman of unknown HIV status (vaginal only) only once, and she is not a prositute (high risk) or anything like that ? i am not circumcised.
i read somewhere, but cant find it now, someone mentioned the percentages of such a risk.
i will get tested anyway, but just for a piece of mind.

You do not know whether she was high risk or not. To put your mind at ease, go get tested once you're out of the window period. The inside of the prepuce or your foreskin is a mucous membrane. No one can give you a definite percentage of such a risk. This is impossible. For now, I can mention to you that vaginal sex is less risky than anal sex and that HIV transmission from female to male is more difficult. Does the risk go up because you are uncircumcised? It is really hard to say. Go in for testing and get it over with.

Good luck,
Tesla
