Brief Answer: Chances of infection are present. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. HIV can be transmitted only if your partner is suffering with it. The risk of HIV transmission as per CDC, Atlanta is With anal receptive intercourse is 50/10000 exposures Vaginal receptive is 10/ 10000 exposures Anal insertive 6.5/10000 exposures Vaginal insertive is 5/10000 exposures Oral sex carries very low risk All other types of sexual activity the risk is negligible. It is better to go for the HIV test 12 weeks after you had sex to get a conclusive result. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
