I dont know what to do
May 1, 2014
Please Doctor I am so scared and need help. I had protected vaginal sex with women and while she was on top of me, she squirted and i could felt her vaginal fluids moved down to my anus. Is there any risk? Doctors from medhelp told me that I am fine and that HIV is not transmitted that way. What do you think? I am freaking out
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi The doctor is correct. HIV transmission can only occur when there is a direct and prolonged exposure to body fluids, semen, vaginal fluid, blood or mother to child through breast feeding. This most commonly occurs through unprotected vaginal or anal sex and sharing of needles. Casual contact, sharing utensils, drinking after someone, etc are not way for HIV transmission to occur. If you go to this link HIV101 it will take you to our page that talks about the ways in which HIV is and is not transmitted.
Condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
