Can you get hiv from a used condom ?
Feb 26, 2013

I went to a prostitute in london she gave a condom i am not sure if that condom was previously used by an hiv+ man i didnt see any sperm in the condom but if there was tiny invisble ammount of infected sperm in there could be infected ?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

No. You would not be at risk in a situation like this. HIV does not live outside of the human body. Any HIV present would be unable to infect you. Also, I find it HIGHLY unlikely that something like this would even occur.

In health,

Richard
