Can vaginal secretions contain hiv? And can it be transferred through oral sex?

Yes: Vaginal secretions can contain hiv. Hiv can be tranferred by oral sex, though less likely, more likely to happen if the oral mucosa has bleeding, but this can be caused by things as simple as brushing the teeth too aggressively or having severe gingivitis. ...Read more

Can HIV be transmitted through 1 day old cuts and vaginal secretions outside the body?

Can HIV be transmitted through 1 day old cuts and vaginal secretions outside the body?

HIV Risks: I would like more information to get a specific idea on what you are truly concerned about. Hiv is in infected humans' body fluids. But, the virus is very fragile and does not last long outside of the body. I would not advise anyone with open sores or fresh cuts to let any infected body fluid near these lesions. My gut sense is that this situation is very low risk and to reassure you. ...Read more

Hi I had protected sex(vaginal) 2 weeks ago with a sex worker with unknown HIV status but had unprotected oral sex for about a minute,what is my risk?

Safe sex: You had safe sex -- congratulations on your wise decision to use a condom for vaginal sex. HIV is rarely if ever transmitted mouth to penis; there are actually no proved cases that it ever happened (despite claims). However, condoms can fail; and other STDs (gonorrhea, herpes due to HSV1, syphilis) can be transmitted by oral sex. Be on the lookout for symptoms and maybe get tested even if none. ...Read more

If you have vaginal or oral sex with an HIV + person without protection are you guaranteed to get the virus? I vomited after sex, increase likelihood?

If you have vaginal or oral sex with an HIV + person without protection are you guaranteed to get the virus? I vomited after sex, increase likelihood?

Infection.: It is not guaranteed 100% that you will or will not become infected with hiv. Do you know that the other person actually has hiv? Vomiting after sex doesn't really matter. It is important to use protection when having sex if you don't want to get a std or aren't ready for pregnancy. You should be tested for hiv. ...Read more

Hi, how risky is unprotected oral sex on me for HIV? Also how risky is protected vaginal sex? My only symptoms are dizziness and mild headaches since day 4 after exposure each day until now (day 10)...are these symptoms of ARS?

Hi, how risky is unprotected oral sex on me for HIV?  Also how risky is protected vaginal sex? My only symptoms are dizziness and mild headaches since day 4 after exposure each day until now (day 10)...are these symptoms of ARS?

No risk, not ARS: Oral sex is safe sex in regard to HIV; there has never been a proved case of transmission mouth to penis. Properly used condoms are 100% protective for vaginal sex, if the condom doesn't break. ARS doesn't cause dizziness or headache, and cannot cause any symptoms at all sooner than 10-14 days after exposure. And HIV is rare in UK women. Your symptoms may be just anxiety. No HIV test needed. ...Read more
