HIV and AIDS Answer A17308
Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.
HIV is transmitted by direct contact with bodily fluids including contact with infected blood, vaginal fluid, and breast milk. But the rate of transmission is directly proportional to the viral load in the infected patient.
In your case, though the transmission of infection is less, if possible you can ascertain the HIV status of the sex worker and also get screened for HIV by ELISA for HIV antibody, at least 4-6 weeks of the exposure.
You might consider consulting your GP for further advice and additional information on tests for HIV.
I hope this helps.
