I was told by a doctor that if one had sex with an infected person, once there's no laceration,the virus cannot be transmitted.is this true?
| Response from Dr. Frascino
Nope. That is not true. HIV can be absorbed directly across mucous membranes (such as the urethra or vagina), and does not require a laceration. Now that you know, please inform your doctor as well, OK?
Stay safe (use latex condoms). Stay well.
