Lots of IFs: If you HIV, and are ovulating, as well. Roughly 20 % chance if pregnancy, if ovulating. Risk of transmission if you have HIV, 1/2500.

Uncertain risk: If you have HIV, there is a chance your partner could catch it, but not a very high risk ; the virus is transmitted infrequently for any single sexual exposure . Do you have HIV? If so, your partner should be tested from time to time, even with consistent condom use. As for pregnancy chance, that depends on the time of your cycle. If you don't want to be pregnant, get onto proper contraception.

Protocol: Standard management currently is that your partner have an HIV test.If negative to go onto PEP(within 72 hours).As regards yourself E-GEN-C pill within 72 hours to prevent pregnancy.The protocol does not consider your CD4 count,viral load or menstrual period.It is there as a catch all. Hope this helps.Your partner might want to consider PReP,but this is best to discuss with your doctor. Good luck

I agree with PrEP if you know you have HIV and are not on anti-treatment with good control. PrEP generally isn't recommended if you're on treatment with undetectable viral load. If even the slightest uncertainty, you and he should see a doctor or clinic with experience with HIV ASAP.
