rubbing generals with HIV positive person.

Sep 23, 2012

rubbing generals with an HIV infected person. He is positive and on Art for two years. He is circumcised. What are the risks for me being infected.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi There is no risk! There has to be a direct exchange of body fluids ad the rubbing of genitals doesn't allow that to happen. If there were to be fluid and with him on ART the risk decreases up to 96%.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Please answer me it's many times I'am asking you
