HIV from Underwear

Dec 12, 2012

Once HIV Leaves the body it begins to die and within a minute time the virus would be unable to infect anyone. If a female eject vaginal secretion over her panty while she was wearing it would the virus be uninfectious after one minute. After removing her panty if she put it under her clothes over a rope would the virus be uninfectious?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

The virus would be unable to infect someone in a situation like this.

In health,


hiv way of transmission
