Contracting Aids/hiv
My B/F had unprotedcted sex with a sex worker , his aim was to contract HIV /AIDS not for the "pleasure" of the act. this happened once , about ten days ago , what are the chances that he has contracted HIV ? He believes that all his big issues have been of a sexual nature in his life, the best way to commit suicide was therefore to contract HIV.

I am devastated tht he could have been that desperate to go out there and do something like that.
I still Love him however, and I still want to spend the rest of my life with him.

The only way he will know is to have himself tested. You should abstain from having sex with him or practice safe sex.
