    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    It is more than possible, it is very likely that you have been infected too. Get in and get tested immediately! No more unprotected sex either!

    I meant that "HE" has most likely been infected too. And I do hope you are taking medication for HIV!!

    If this brings you some comfort the ESTIMATED per-act risk from unprotected insertive penile-vaginal intercourse (that's your boyfriend having unprotected intercourse with you) is 5 per 10,000 exposures.

    So, while it is not a given that you have infected him, there is a risk that this has taken place.

    At this point in time you two need to stop have unprotected sex and he needs to undergo testing...and continue the testing until at least 3 months have passed from your last unprotected sex.

    You also need to start being followed by an Infectious Disease specialist; whether you need to start medication now would be dependent on factors that include the strength of your immune system and the amount of virus you have.
