if you have intercourse with a male and he doesn't ejaculate inside a woman, could she get infected if he was hiv positive
Response from Mr. Kull
It is possible for a woman to get infected with HIV if an HIV infected man has unprotected insertive vaginal sex with her even if he does not ejaculate. While ejaculation can increase the risk for infection, exposure to pre-cum/pre-ejaculate (the fluid that comes out of the tip of the penis during sexual arousal) alone does pose a risk for infection. See "Can pre-ejaculatory fluid transmit HIV?" (http://www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/SafeSex/Archive/TransmissionSexual/Q39212.qna).
