How Long Can Hiv Survive In Water
In an enclosed area, e.g an artificial vagina, how long can hiv survive inside? Can HIV also survive in water base lube that emulate vagina lube?
Hours? Days?: HIV probably can survive for a few days in any closed, moist environment. Most sexual lubricants contain preservatives that likely would kill HIV. But these are the wrong questions.

If HIV status is unknown for you, or the transgender woman you are concerned about, you (both?) must be tested.

Doesn't matter: Whether and how long HIV would survive in this situation does not matter. Nobody gets infected with HIV by drinking or otherwise coming into contact with contaminated water.

Unlikely: It is potentially possible but rarely if ever reported. I suspect that the chlorinated water may play a role in keeping the germs down.

No risk: Almost certainly no risk. However, if you have reason to believe the lubricant has somehow been contaminated, e.g. with another person's genital fluids, then dischard it and buy some more. Even though the risk is nil, probably you will continue to worry about it. And lube is cheap, so just toss it out.
