Re: Worried, rape victim

Hi Lilsea,

I'm sorry to hear of your rape. It is true that your chances of contracting the HIV virus are EXTREMELY low since this man wore a condom and did not climax. The condom protected you from any fluid exchange. You should not worry about contracting the virus. I hope you never have to deal with a rapist again...but just so you know, (and tell your friends also) that if you are raped and you are unsure if the rapist has HIV, you can go to the hospital and receive drugs that will help prevent your body from HIV infection even if you were exposed. Also, if you feel like you need to talk about the rape, there are many free rape crisis centers that offer individual and group counseling. They also have 24 hotlines.

Take care Lilsea.
