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.
