Help scared
« on: March 26, 2013, 08:03:22 PM »
I had sex last night with guy. Condom was always on when he was inside me. He did take condom off when he was not inside me and rubbed his penis by my butt hole. I had small cut by the butthole from pooping and whipping  butt too hard four hours before sexual encounter. Cut was burning from lube.. During intercourse.. I'm just scared maybe his precum touched my cut when he rubbed penis on my cutt and I'm  I'm infected with hiv now.  He was unsure if he had it or not cause he hasn't had a conclusive 3 months rapid test. So penis precum touched cut outside body am I at risk?

You never had an exposure. For HIV to take place it would have to be unprotected penetrative anal sex.

I try concentrate on the science involved in the way HIV infections occur and transmission routes and not comment on what other web sites may or may not be reporting .

The science is clear in a case like the one you are concerned about . HIV is an extremely fragile virus that cannot survive outside the human body due to changes in temperature and PH levels . When the HIV virus is exposed to air it becomes damaged instantly and is rendered unable  to infect . If HIV was as easy to contract by simply being exposed in the way you are concerned about we would be in big trouble and most of the world would have HIV by now . HIV is transmitted when you engage in unprotected vaginal or anal sex that involves penetration . If you use condoms correctly and consistently you will avoid exposure to HIV .

You did not have a risk .

Even if the precum directly touched cum as soon as it exited the penis because his penis was rubbing on my cut and he had been precumming during whole time during intercourse

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.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child
