I got chlamydia through this but I need to take a HIV test. So you’re telling me it’s very unlikely?

Yes - chlamydia is different - it is easy to acquire - but HIV is not.

To give you peace of mind - I will let you know certain facts.

Most people believe that if you have unprotected intercourse with an HIV positive person, you will get HIV 100% of the time which is NOT true.

The figures and chances that I have mentioned have been devised after years of studies and research and these are the chances that the CDC mentions as well.

Secondly, even if you had intercourse twice, the risk would still be low, at most around 0.1%. So there would be 99.9% chance that you didn't get the virus.

Given this - the chances of you getting HIV is zero please.

May I request for a 5 - star positive rating so that I can get my professional credit please.

Okay thank you so much. This all happened last year and a few months later I got pityriasis rosea, does that mean I could have any other infection?

I can assure you it is not HIV related.
