Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   Hey there, how are you?
User :   I've got a question pertaining to HIV, actually..
Doctor :   ok
User :   I know now is a bit late to be asking this, but I'm wondering how high my chances of contracting this virus may be..
User :   I'm bi (stupid, I know) and I've had unprotected sex in the past year with three others.
User :   They were all clean, so they tell me.
User :   And yes, I'm very much done with that practice.
User :   If it isn't already too late
Doctor :   Hiv is not about clean or not
User :   something you're born with?
Doctor :   if you have sexual intercourse with guys/gals who have HIV, then your chances of getting hiv are high
User :   Well I'm going to get tested soon, and not make this mistake anymore.
Doctor :   I appreciate that
User :   Thanks for the help, and hopefully I didn't already get it.
User :   Are my chances pretty high after three instances?
Doctor :   ok
User :   I live in OR, if that makes any difference.
Doctor :   it totally depends on the status of your partners
Doctor :   not the number of instances
