indirect exposure to vaginal fluid
Mar 20, 2001
Dear Mr Ryan M. Kull
Lately,I was given a body massage by an African sex worker . However I am worried because during the massage she sat on my legs which had some minor wounds with a healing scab and than played with her vagina and touched around my healing acnes on my chest. Please can you let me know if this incedent can cause an HV transmission,should I be tested. thank you
Response from Mr. Kull
It is highly unlikely that you get infected with HIV through a body massage. Even if she had been infected and had vaginal fluid on her hands, there is such a low risk for transmission.
