about semen
Dec 28, 2010

Hi Dr. once day my friend perform musterbation by his hand. after that i drink a glass of water from his hand. if his finger put in to the water and some semen or sperm enters in to the water can you tell me what will be chances of hiv Transmission.

Response from Dr. McGowan

This would not be a risky situation. It would be much much less risky than oral sex in which ejaculation occurs directly in the mouth. Is your friend HIV-positive? If his status is not known the risk would be even less.

Next time ask him to wash his hands after taking care of his business.

Best, Joe
