Hello, I have a queston about the risks of HIV. I'm in a mutually monogamous relationship with my girlfriend. Before we started dating each other, neither of us had had sex before. We've had protected sex twice, and countless unprotected oral encounters. In June of 2004, I tested negative for HIV. I had a test done because I had received tattoo work and was curious. In April of 2005, my partner and I had HIV tests. They were both negative. I wanted to know what the risk of contracting HIV is, in my particular situation? Neither of us had had any type of sex before we starting going out with each other and...we don't use injection drugs, we're faithful etc...thank you for your help.

I'm not a dr, but there are some great people you can speak with live, at the following #. They have some of the latest statistics on HIV transmission and will give you honest feedback to your concerns..800.342.AIDS
However, since you are worried about it, I would highly recommend simply both of you getting tested for exposure to HIV.
It is a simple and fairly reliable test, and I'm certain the results will put both of you at ease.
Nothing you mentioned would have me alarmed about possibly having HIV.
Get the facts and be safe.
