Contact con mestruation blood
May 21, 2003

Dear Mr Kull

If someone get in contact (hands or fingers) with a women mestruation blood, hiv+ , could get infected?

What about if any cut in those fingers that touched that mestruation blood?

Thanks

Response from Mr. Kull

You are only at risk for HIV infection through contact with HIV infected blood if the blood had direct access to your mucous membranes or bloodstream. The behaviors primarily associated to this type of transmission are anal, vaginal, and oral sex, and sharing injection needles for drug use. If you are not engaging in these activities, you should not consider yourself at risk for HIV infection.
