I THINK YOU ALSO DONT KNOW THE ANSWER
Sep 23, 2002

hi doctor i have asked several times but i dont got any answer frorm youb approx 50 days ago i went to a prostitute i have made just only one mistake i have rubbed my pennis on her vagina ( though i was in my jeans and my underwear) a after 45 days i went for hiv test and found negative can u tell me what is my risk of getting HIV.

Response from Mr. Kull

I do know the answer!!! You are not at any risk for HIV (based on this specific encounter). It's important to remember that HIV is only known to be transmitted through the following three ways:

1) Sexual contact: anal, vaginal, and oral sex

2) Blood-to-blood contact: sharing injection needles, occupational exposures, blood transfusions (which is rare in the U.S.)

3) Mother-to-infant: either through delivery or during breast feeding

HIV cannot penetrate clothes, skin, latex condoms, underwear, etc. You are only at risk for infection if infected fluids come into direct contact with your mucous membranes or bloodstream.
