Risk is not an absolute nor is it a certainty. Rather, risk is seen as an estimate for potential danger of future damage or the relative probability of a generally negative outcome based on current behaviour. As such, levels of risk may vary from one person to the next. Are you unsure of what your current level of STI or HIV related risks are? Are you perhaps concerned about past situations that may have involved some risk? Do you sometimes convince yourself that you are being safe, while at the back of your mind you know that you have taken a number of risks? Well then this easy-to-use risk calculator is for you. Answer each of the following questions by selecting the most appropriate option.
This risk calculator is not meant to give you a definitive risk assessment but is rather a rough guide to help you assess your current and recent practices.
