Hiv contract

Feb 4, 2012

Hi Dr, Im just wondering if hiv can be transmitted if a girl who just touched her vagina and then she touched my underwear? Im so worried right now. Please help me.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

The answer to your question is no. HIV does not live well outside the body. In addition, the virus needs direct access to your blood stream for transmission to occur. The kind of direct access that can happen during sex or when sharing needles. You were not at risk.

In health,


I think I tested early
Please guide me, I'm Terribly scared!!
