Mar 30, 2014

hi i have been masturbating for 3 years and i notice a few months ago that my sperm is yellowish and now i am scared that i have hiv but i have never had sex before please comment back quickly.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

Yellow-tinged semen can indicate the presence of urine. You can always check with a doctor to see if they want to look into it further.

As for HIV, the color of your semen has nothing to do with HIV. Furthermore, you must come into contact with someone who is infected for your to be at risk. If you are virgin, and have not shared needles or drug works then there is no risk of HIV transmission.

Check out our section on HIV Prevention for east to understand information on how HIV is transmitted.

In health,
