Hello,


Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question you were asking about other sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea increasing your risk of HIV transmission. In this scenario, I am going to assume that you and your husband engaged in unprotected intercourse. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be High Risk (there is evidence of transmission through these activities and are the majority of cases of transmission).

The scenario mentioned above does meet the three components of the transmission equation, pictured below. The presence of other sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea increase the risk of HIV transmission. This is because they are associated with lesions, sores and other breaks in the skin that cause increased inflammation and allow increased access to the bloodstream (1).
