3. I have tried to find out the case studies of those men's who were infected from HIV + girl in one instance but I don't find any single study so I just want to know in USA(NY or Hartford) how many man's were infected due to unprotected sex with HIV+ women's or girls

Brief Answer:
Unlikely to get HIV.Do PCR test

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for query.I am Dr Bharatesh D Basti answering your query.
As you have rightly said the chances of acquiring HIV from sexual intercourse from HIV positive patient varies from 1 in 200 to 1 in 1000.It means that there is 0.05% chance to 0.001% chance that you will get by one intercourse with a HIV positive women if she has high viral loads.It may be still less if low viral loads.
As she has confirmed to you her negative status you need not worry.
All studies do mention range mathematics cannot work always .it depends on number of ulcers/abrasions in both and viral load, contact period and virus presence in infective fluid etc
You can go ahead with PCR tests for HIV.
In window period she can be healthy and some may have non specific symptoms or symptoms of ARS.
I feel you have become more anxious .The partner is already Negative allay fears wait for result
get back to me after results.It will be negative.
you can get back to me for any clarifications
Thank you

Hello Doc, Thanks for reply..
1. its a 10th day I am feeling pain in my throat from last 3-4 days, little shivering, little pain in my testicles from 2 day of exposer and light body pain is that a symptom of HIV?
2. as she comes from Risk Group(As she is Sex Worker in USA) is that increase the chances of my to be infected because at any how I can not believe on her words.
3. I don't have cuts on my penis and the time duration of sex was just 3 minute and as being a inserter I will come in which range?
4.i have also read in some blogs on the "net" that women to man Hiv in first time is very - very difficult to transfer, is that correct if No then do you know how many cases has been reported till know of one time sex with an HIV+ in US?
5. can I go for 1st test after 3 weeks?

again I know these questions can not change my HIV result but just for a mind satisfaction can u plz answer me on these Question?

Brief Answer:
Allay all fears.PCR after 3 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for follow up query.

The symptoms like throat pain fever etc all non specific and can be due to simple Upper respiratory infections(URI) also which can be transmitted by the partner or others also.You can take treatment as URI symptomatically.which will usually be viral.If need be antibiotics may be needed.You are worrying just because you had intercourse.Allay fears.

Yes she will be considered High risk if the status is unknown.It is for the patient safety and management unknown patients are said high risk.It is better for patient.Many will be in fact negative.Just category does not increase your risk it is real presence of high viral load is risk which is unlikely according to history.

Undoubtedly absence of cuts or abrasions is a strong safety for you.

Also transmission from female to male is very less or rare for single contacts that too with no abrasions.

I do not think we will get reports or studies of person becoming positive after single intercourse.As many times there are multiple modes of transmission and it is difficult to point to single intercourse.

it is good for you to get PCR and p24 antigen tests done after 3 weeks which will allay your fears totally.
You can allay fears for now.
You can share the results if you desire.
You can get back to me for any clarifications else please close the discussion and rate.
wish you good health
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Tests for HIV-RNA presence.specific test.

PCR test can come positive even after 3 days of infection if HIV infected. It is specific that 99.9% times it is sure in telling that you really do not have the disease at the time of testing.It detects presence of any HIV RNA material if present at the time of testing.it is more accurate after 10-11 days of exposure.
