    Transmission of HIV does not occur 100% of the time. However, it is possible to get infected from only one exposure.

    The people who have answered "yes" are just flat out wrong. There is always some chance, but if you are talking about a single instance of intercourse, the chance is actually fairly small (it does vary though - depending on if you are talking uninfected/infected cases of female/male, male/female, male/male intercourse. If you are having sex with an HIV infected person on a regular basis the chance obviously increases. Here are a few links that give estimates for the probabilities of infection:

    No. A 100% chance means that the HIV negative person is guaranteed to become infected, which is not true. Nevertheless, there is a risk of infection.

    No, its not 100% at all. There are many variable factors, including immune response, viral viability in utero, etc. There is however a high probability. Repeated sexual acts involving the exchange of bodily fluids, while still not 100%, are almost certain to cause the transmission of the disease.

    It is far more likely that you will catch HIV from blood or blood sera than from semenal discharge.

    No, but it's extremely unethical on the part of the person with HIV.

    It is not 100% that they will get it. It is also impossible to know how many times you have to be exposed to get infected. It's like Russian Roulette, literally.

    NO, there isn't an 100 percent chance of getting it but the percentage increase via route of the sexual act.
    Anal penetration seems to increase the chances of transmission of HIV due to broken blood vessels due to forcing the sphincter open from the outside. the virus has direct virus/blood contact. Vaginal penetration comes in second. and oral is third.
    The percentage of getting HIV is high so it isn't worth the risk

    not necessarily. It's a lot easier for a man with HIV to give it to a woman than it is for a woman to give it to a man. Reason being it that the woman's vagina is a perfect place to harbor and grow bacteria, being that it is dark and moist. This is the same for most STDs.

    It's not 100%. usually women have more chances to contract hiv from sex

    Nothing is 100%. BUT it is very risky and the person has a very good chance of getting HIV. I wouldn't risk it bc the chances are you probably will get HIV.

    No. It's more likely if the man has HIV though (if we are talking about heterosexuals) because women are just more likely to be exposed then if the woman had it and the man did not. The chance is much higher if they had anal sex or if the woman had her period or there were any tears (esp. if she was a virgin or the sex was rough). The person that has HIV has the LEGAL and ETHICAL responsibility in most countires (at least in the USA) to tell his/her partner of his/her status. If they do not and the other person gets HIV, it can be considered "attempted manslaughter" or worse. If someone with HIV has sex, they should ALWAYS use a condom even if their partner is infected. Here's more facts on HIV and unprotected sex:

    Just always use protection unless you are in a relationship where you are both 100% sure you are HIV negative and STD free and only have sex with each other. The person that had sex with the person with HIV needs to be tested and again in 6 months because it can be dormant for a while. And remember that you can just as easily spread HIV via oral sex too! If this isn't just a 'hypothetical' question, I hope that the person that had sex with the HIV infected person is okay! If they are not, please see that they get the proper counseling and get on the right meds. to prevent getting AIDS. Remember that HIV is no longer a death sentence but it is still VERY WRONG to have unprotected sex if you HIV!

    No, but it's taking a HUGE risk.

    Also, certain sexual activities will be more risky than others, but all will carry significant risk...

    The person should DEFINITELY be tested...

    There is a VERY HIGH chance that they will get it, and if the infected person doesn't tell the uninfected person about being HIV positive that's illegal

    Well of course it is never a 100%, especially when it's a woman with HIV having sex with a man without HIV, but practically they are about 95%.

    @kingofazeroth: antibiotics have nothing to do with HIV, the 'V' in HIV stands for: VIRUS....

    Not 100% but it may as well be. Pretty damn stupid. There are drugs you can take if you think you've been infected but they only work if taken VERY soon after intercourse and are not guaranteed to work.
    ALWAYS use a condom.

    Yes. In many states it is illegal for person infected with HIV to knowingly have unprotected sex.

    It's not safe at all. The risk is not one which anyone should take. There is a slim chance that the unaffected person won't contract it, however, there is a greater chance that they will.

    not 100 percent by highly likely, also after you are infected, it can take sometimes 8 months or more for you to get a positive test, but sometimes people test positive almost immediately after exposure. SO, just because you get a negative result, you should get tested every month thereafter for about a yr, and DO NOT have unprotected sex with anyone else until after a yr to ensure you do not expose anyone else to the virus.

    Near enough as makes no difference, I think. As in, the possibility that they'll be okay exists, but is way too small to rely on.
