Anxiety Stricken

Re: Low Risk/High Risk

The words are pretty self explanatory. High risk activity, like receiving vaginal or anal sex, means that you are more at risk than a low risk activity such as receiving oral sex. There are no statistics. Just think about what needs to happen to contract HIV. 1. you need an HIV+ partner 2. There needs to be an infective amount of HIV virus in the contacted body fluid that is capable of causing infection; and 3. The HIV virus needs direct contact with your blood.
By keeping this in mind you can assess your risk. At any rate, a single risky sexual exposure puts the odds in your favor. Be more careful in the future. Good luck. Hope this helps.
