|Can I get infected if?
Apr 9, 2007
Neither by boyfriend or I have ever had any STD. Just recently my boyfriend was shaving his pubic hairs and he go a little razor cut in his penis. It had already scabbed and 2 days later we had sexual intercourse and the scab fell off. It scabbed a second time and 3 days later we had sex again and the scab fell again. Am I at risk of getting HIV, AIDS or any STD?

Any direct contact of the genital tract or anal canal with HIV infected blood (such as could be present in this wound) during sexual contact could transmit HIV infection. This being said, if your boyfriend is not infected with HIV, then there is nothing to worry about.
