|hiv heterosexual transmission
Sep 22, 2003
Is HIV transmitted from a male to female partner during intercourse, only when there are lesions or tears within the woman's vagina? Would this be the only way for the virus to actually enter into the woman's bloodstream, thereby infecting her?
Response from Dr. Luzuriaga
While HIV transmission is probably more efficient when lesions are present, it can also occur when overt lesions are not present.
Can having herpes affect and HIV test?
