I recently had vaginal sex with a woman. All but a maximum

This answer was rated:

I recently had vaginal sex with a woman. All but a maximum of two minutes at the end was protected (roughly 2 minutes of unprotected sex). I know the woman and am in touch. She is not an IV drug user, not a prostitute and is heterosexual and mostly monogamous. I am heterosexual, non-IV drug user and also largely monogamous. She says that she tested negative for hiv in June. I feel I should get tested to be safe. Do you have any notion of the risk in this for hiv?
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

assuming she has HIV, unprotected vaginal sex has about a 5 in 10,000 chance of you contracting HIV.

if she does not have HIV, then you have no risk.

here is the data

so your chances of contrating HIV are very very low.

you can always get HIV testing to be sure you don't fall in the 5 in 10,000 risks.

does this help?

let me know if you have questions.
