Pre Cum question
      #161305 - 10/07/05 12:08 PM

Does anyone know how long hiv in pre cum lasts outside the body? I have heard the it dies quickly. I was recently exposed to it and was wondering what risk it carried. It was a big risk but was still wondering.

There's no single response to this question, because the more fluid there is, the longer the virus can survive. But as a rule, once the virus is outside the body, it dies quickly. In your case, for there to be any risk, your bloodstream or mucus membranes would have to have been exposed directly to fresh fluid -- if you just touched it with your skin, there's no risk at all.
