|Can I Get HIV If Blood Drop On My Stomach
Jun 15, 2009
While having sex with a lady, a few drops of blood (3-4 drops) dropped on my pelvic area. The lady confirmed that she is HIV negative. But assuming that she is HIV positive, what is the possibility to get HIV. I was using Latex Condom and there was no cut or wound in that area. I immediately wiped the blood with a napkin and washed the whole area with water and soap?

Your HIV-acquisition risk would be nonexistent. HIV cannot permeate intact skin.
