Hi there, just how easy is HIV transmitted as I had a drunken incident in Uganda with a person of unknown origin and history. As far as I am aware no penetration took place or oral sex, but mutual masturbation did take place. I know I did not enter the vagina but my penus may have caught the outside edges momentarily. Having spoken to a specialist in London he thought that I would have zero chance.
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I agree with your specialist.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The chances of HIV transmission in your scenario are nil.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So I would not worry at all.

Customer:

But what worries me is the fact I was so drunk

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you are still unable to recall what happened you can always get yourself tested at six to eight weeks after this incident.

Customer:

ok, well I have just gone for a full screening, today after 12 days.

Customer:

so I guess that will not show

Dr. Shahzad MD :

12 days is a bit too early

Dr. Shahzad MD :

To be sure give it at least a couple of months

Customer:
