Hello,


Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV after engaging in 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).

The scenario mentioned above could meet the three components of the transmission equation if the condom was not used properly, or if it broke during sexual activity. If there was a break in the protective barrier, then it is possible that vaginal fluids containing the HIV virus could have gained direct access to your bloodstream through your urethra/mucous membranes.
Helpline Transmission Equation .jpgIt was very responsible of you to access HIV testing after engaging in a risky activity. The 3rd generation tests you accessed are considered completely conclusive 3 months post-exposure, and thus the negative results you have received are completely conclusive.

In regards to your symptoms, it is important to recognize that stress can lead us to experience a variety of symptoms. Although there may be another infection or disease resulting in your symptoms, you can be assured that HIV is very unlikely to be the cause.

Recommendation: Since HIV testing has been accessed outside of the window period, no further HIV testing is required. Refer to a health care provider for other health related questions.

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Marie
