I am a male and was engaging in protected sex with an woman.

During sex I have had an active bleeding cut on top part of penis shaft(close to body) which was not covered by the condom.
The cut was caused from the rough unprotected blowjob with teeth grinding which happened before protected sex.

The cut on uncovered area of penis shaft had a significant amount of blood coming out of it.
Me and the woman were both under influence of alcohol so we noticed that cut
only in the end of sex.
Also I saw that the condom was covering only 70% of penis shaft which led me to believe that the bleeding cut was fully inside woman's vagina during sex.

I think that this bleeding cut on penis shaft could enable access for
HIV to blood stream because it had a lot of blood coming out of it during the sex.

1.       Assuming that this active bleeding cut on uncovered penis shaft could
          enable access for HIV to bloodstream,
          what is the HIV risk when this bleeding cut which
          was not covered by the condom,
          had a direct contact with possible woman's HIV menstural blood or HIV
          vaginal fluid, when the cut was fully inside woman's vagina
          during the multiple times I was thrusting in the woman's vagina during sex?

2.       Does this active bleeding cut on uncovered area on penis shaft
          when contact menstural blood/vaginal fluild in vagina during sex,
          increase my HIV risk?
          Or because this cut was on top of penis, thus it was exposed to air,
          each time I was thristing out during sex,
          there  is no increase in HIV risk from this cut?

3.       Are there any similar documented cases of HIV infection like my case
          with active bleeding cut on uncovered area of penis shaft
          which fully enters into vagina during sex?

I would appreciate your professional explanations for the mechanics of HIV infections
through such active bleeding cuts on uncovered area
of penis shaft in such case, taking in account the partial exposure to air
of the bleeding cut during sex when thrusting out.

Thank you for the help and patience.

I read your post three times.

Move on with your life! You had sex, get over it, you didn't have a gaping open wound requiring medical attention.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider starting PrEP as an additional layer of HIV protection.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

There was relatively a lot of blood coming out of the cut but it did not
require medical treatment such as stitches.

So from this case no HIV concern and no need to
test outside of the anuual routine tests?

Just curious, were there any documented cases of HIV infection
from such cases with bleeding cuts on uncovered area of penis shaft during sex?

The theoretical HIV risk in such case is only if the cut on uncovered area
of penis shaft is gaping open and requiring medical attention such as stitches?

Thank you for your attention.

No cases, move on.

Continue to use condoms and test out of routine at least yearly.

And the theoretical HIV risk in such case is only if the cut on the uncovered area
of penis shaft is gaping open with need of immediate stitches in such way
that sex will not be possible due to massive amounts of blood?

My case and similar cases are not HIV concern and no need for
testing?

I would just appreciate your professional explanation to why HIV infection is not possible in such case like mind.

Hiya,

What you posted lacks the conditions needed for HIV transmission including route, so if this was your only sexual encounter in life it's fine to move on
