Information about Hiv

Jun 24, 2013

Hi! How are you? I met married woman ,who has no children and we are friends .On 26th of May we met and we had intercourse with protection (condom) but I had Sucked her nipples for around two minutes .I don't know her HIV status now I am really worried about HIV transmit my question is Does HIV transfer through kissing and sucking nipples or breast milk to adults ? Thanks in Advance please reply me

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. You cannot get HIV from kissing or suckling breast. In order for HIV transmission to occur there has to be a direct exchange of body fluid through unprotected sex or sharing needles. Transmission occurs through exchange of blood, semen, vaginal fluid or mother breast milk.

With having protected sex, you effectively protected yourself.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
