What are the more common ways to contract HIV ? has there been any recording of the Condom Breaking and the person has then contracted HIV ? Has there been any recording of a person sitting on a needle and then getting HIV ? will you know if you sat on a needle around the tailbone area ?

HIV is transmitted the following ways:

Unprotected anal or vaginal sex. Extremely rarely from giving unprotected oral.

Blood to blood as in sharing IV needles or a needle stick in a health care setting. In both instances hollow bores are used. Not needles as in sewing needles.

Mother to child during birth or from breast feeding.

Those are the ways that HIV is transmitted. SO, if a condom broke and you didn't stop, that would put it under the first one. Unprotected sex as of the time the condom broke.

Sitting on a needle. Please. If you're that paranoid, I would suggest you just stand.
