Risk Of Getting HIV When Having Anal Sex?
If HIV negative with HIV negative and having anal sex, is there a risk of being HIV positive ???
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically, HIV is a contagious disease, which means that every person affected by HIV must be infected by someone else, whether through sexual contact, blood transfusion, sharing needles or from mother to child when breastfeeding. HIV is different from diseases such as heart disease, which just appears on a person's body and not because of infection from someone else.
So regarding your question, of course it's impossible that two people who are equally not suffering from HIV, can suffer from HIV if they only have sexual relations with each other. No matter how often a partner has sexual relations in any way, if none of them were infected with HIV initially, then no one will get HIV.
But not suffering from HIV does not mean it is safe to have anal sex. Anal sex still has potential dangers such as increased potential for infection, triggering anal injury and tears, worsening hemorrhoids, and the most severe is increasing the risk of anal cancer. Therefore, even if we do not transmit HIV, we still do not recommend you to do anal sex. So, hopefully answering your question.
