The number in Insertive penile to vaginal intercourse didn't say how many men are circumcised and not circumcised. Where did you find the report that circumcised men have 60% lower risk?

if you think im wrong What will be then the risk female to male in your opinion per act
Expert:  khagihara replied 6 months ago.

The CDC statics doesn't mention the participants are circumcised or not. It is difficult to calculate the probability. But there could be some who are not circumcised in the CDC statics. So I would say less than 1 in 2500.

You can have a H(V RNA test 9 to 11 days after exposure and get the fastest, most accurate results available on the market. Since it is a very sensitive test, it could cause false positive result. If it is negative, you don't have HIV.

Expert:  khagihara replied 6 months ago.

The majority of people infected by HIV develop a flu-like illness within a month or two after the virus enters the body. This illness, known as primary or acute HIV infection, may last for a few weeks. Possible signs and symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches and joint pain
  • Rash
  • Sore throat
  • Swollen lymph glands, mainly on the neck

Although the symptoms of primary HIV infection may be mild enough to go unnoticed, the amount of virus in the bloodstream (viral load) is particularly high at this time.
