Fluid from man's nipple

Oct 6, 2012

Hello, I am very worried. the last time I have protected sex I was touching mi partners nipples (a man) and I saw that a transparent fluid was on my fingers(that fluid came from his nipples) Is there a risk, if he has HIV, that he infected me?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi HIV transmission occurs when there exchange of body fluid, this fluid includes blood, vaginal or seminal fluid or breast milk. Though it is fluid coming from the breast it is not breast milk. This is not a way for HIV to be transmitted.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
