Let me get straight to it. I was rubbing my penis between a girls ass cheeks when she grabbed my penis and put it by her vagina but I pulled it away right away. It did come in contact with her vaginal fluid but just the outside from what I know. My doctor told me today that there is a small chance of getting HIV from this. Is he right?

No. HIV requires unprotected PENETRATIVE vaginal sex to be a concern.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

Last ?:

I read from Andy that anal and vaginal unprotected sex is only CONFIRMED risk of transmission, does that mean the other just aren't confirmed or have they been absolutely ruled out?

Also, from Anne I read that hiv is primarily transmitted inside body. So my question is if you say primarily then when else is it transmitted?

Thanks guys i really appreciate it

If you'd bothered to read our posting guidelines - or the Terms of Membership you agreed to when you created BOTH accounts - you'd know that you're only permitted one account.

You've also been posting here as anxiety1111.

You are now permanently banned.

We've told you repeatedly that you didn't have a risk. If you cannot bring yourself to believe us, go test and collect your negative result.

As a sexually active adult, you should be testing at least once a year anyway. It's what responsible adult do - as you've also already been told.
