cuts:how deep is your love
Jun 29, 2000

if i touch a woman's vagina and i have a healing cut that is no longer bleeding but still slightly painful am i likely to get aids?(i used a towel jus in case)

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It all depends on whether the woman has HIV, if the cut is still open and how much virus is there. Using a towel afterward isn't going to help.

CMV & Floaters
possibility of infection?
