HIV interaction

May 26, 2012

Can a man give a woman hiv if he rubs on her vagina with his penis but never actually injects it in her and there is no semen?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The likelihood is very small for HIV transmission to occur this way. It would be possible if either of you had open wounds where HIV can enter into the body, but one of you must have HIV in order for this to happen.

Again the likelihood is small.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
