Do I have HIV?

Hello, I had sex with a guy who may or may not have HIV. I don't know. We use a condom but at a point when he pulled out, the condom slipped of. It slide down to the tip of his penis and he slide it back on before he put his penis in me again. Can I get HIV from that?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about the possibility of contracting HIV.

Human immunodeficiency virus or HIV is the virus that causes HIV infection and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS. It is transmitted by having anal or vaginal sexual intercourse with an infected person, as well as with illicit injectable drug use.

Anonymous, I suggest you get a screening blood test done as soon as possible.

Hello Anonymous,

Yes. If he is infected with HIV, he could have passed it on to you because the condom was not on the entire time. That is why I suggested you get tested.
