tkd,

You had protected intercourse therefore you were not at risk for hiv infection. Hiv is not transmitted in the manner you describe.

And by the way, only women have a uterus.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

You're not listening, fella. Ann has told you that you weren't at risk because you wore a condom. They provide very effective protection against HIV transmission.

Read the lessons on transmission and testing which you can find a link to in the first thread in this section.

If you're old enough to be having intercourse you are also old enough to have a better sense of anatomy and what safer sex is about.

You are in an uproar without any basis for it in HIV science. No kidding.

tkd,

You can continue repeating your question to the end of time, but the answer is not going to change. What you describe is NOT a risk for hiv infection.

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.
