HIV Fact or Myth?
Dec 4, 2002

I was told today that you can prevent HIV infection by bathing right after sex. I always thought this to be false. Is it fact or myth that good hygiene can prevent stds such as HIV???

Response from Mr. Kull

HIV transmission cannot be prevented by bathing after sex. The best method to reduce the risk of transmission during sex is to use condoms.
