Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquisition of HIV through protected vaginal sex. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Low Risk Evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met (Example: vaginal sex with a condom due to improper use and potential breakage of the condom)

In order to contract HIV the following conditions must be met: There must be HIV present in a bodily fluid. The five bodily fluids that carry the HIV virus include: blood, semen (including pre-ejaculate), vaginal fluids, breast milk, and rectal secretions. The bodily fluid containing HIV must have direct access to the bloodstream. This can be through cuts, tears, rips, mucous membranes, open sores, or needles. Transmission occurs through a risky activity in which the first two conditions are met. For example: condom less sex, sharing needles, unsafe tattoos or piercings, vertical transmission–from mother to child (in utero, during delivery, breastfeeding). The above scenario meets the criteria of the transmission equation as there is an involvement (exchange) of body fluids and direct access to the bloodstream (via mucous membranes)

HIV symptoms mirror other viral infections and diseases and can be due or explained by other things, testing is really the only way to know. If your symptoms do not improve after completing the course of antibiotics, we suggest that you get tested for HIV.

Recommendation: Refer to Physician for HIV test.
