Hi, I had an exposure. Unprotected anal and vaginal sex with a commercial sex worker (the condom broke). Is this something I need be extremely worried about? As in do I need to take a pcr rna at 13 days? And if that comes back negative is it conclusive?

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Can you first tell me exactly what happened with the condom?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Hi Dr. Chip, the condom actually slipped off during anal sex and we--drunkenly--continued on to vaginal sex. Given my understanding is relatively unlikely that she had hiv and even more unlikely that it was transmitted during penetrative sex.
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 2 months ago.

OK

Of course if she were negative the risk would be zero

But the risk otherwise, while very low, isn't zero

If the pcr ma test were positive at the two week mark that would be accurate but if it were negative you'd need to retest at the 2 month mark to confirm you were truly negative
