I was making out wuth my man and he poured his sperms on top of my vagina thou the sperms never penetrated inside my vagina and i sort of wet by then, will i be at risk of getting HIV?? And what does it mean when you say HIV is transmitted through vaginal fluids? Dont understand!
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi The situation you described carries a low risk of HIV transmission, but does carry a risk because of his semen coming into contact with your vaginal area. If a woman is living with HIV, such as myself, my vaginal fluid contains HIV and can be transmitted. Though it is very difficult for a woman to transmit the virus to a man it is possible.
Because there was an exchange of body fluid, his semen coming into contact with your vaginal area and not knowing his status I would recommend testing, though again it's a small risk, but you should know for sure.
The testing guidelines are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 90 days, and as long as there were no other exposures during this time than the results are conclusive.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
