Dear Doctor..Plz reply this is 3rd time iam posting .. plz reply I am so much tensed about this incident and so much worried if I am going to be infected with HIV :( This is what happened.. I never had a sexual activity.My roommate has done so many times with sex workers and many girls visit our room for him.. Once unknowingly I wore his UNDERWEAR which was wet..Now i am tensed up in a feeling that if he had HIV and some of his semen was in the underwear and by chance it entered my body through tip(Urethra) :( I am so much worried and dont know whom to ask !! Please help me.

Hello there You cannot get HIV from wearing your roommates underwear no matter if he has HIV or not. HIV is a fragile virus that does not survive long in the environment (some say seconds to minutes). Take care, LHW
