User avatar Hello,

HIV is commonly transmitted through an unprotected sex with an infected partner. There is a risk of infection from a single exposure, the risk increases when there is an ulcer or skin abrasion in the genitals or the oral cavity.

If you have been exposed to the virus through any route like unprotected sex (vaginal or oral sex), you should consider HIV testing.

HIV antibodies reach detectable levels in 1 to 6 months following infection.
Your health care provide screening of HIV and advise you for proper management before the immune system is compromised.

Best regards.
