Hello again doctor..

As reference to your answer to me before ;( ids-question-t329257.html), What did you mean by "..the chances of your wife and son being infected is very less."?

Did you mean I should not worry at all or forget about them being infected? Or did you mean there is a slight chances that they may got infected? Do they need a test too?

Thanks again doctor..

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Yes, there is no need to be worried about them being infected.

Since the exposure you had was by receiving unprotected oral sex from a sex worker, and you had a negative HIV test at 6 months post exposure, it is conclusive that you were not infected with HIV.

Hence there is no need to worry about infection of your wife and kid. Hence there is no need for any testing for them.
