How long do HIV survive in Semen
      #274993 - 01/24/14 07:33 PM

I have a question. Why is there such conflicting report about how HIV survive outside the body in semen. There one report that HIV dies when the semen dried up. Then there other report that it dies instantly in semen when it hit the air? Which is true?

Just can't let go of this can you? So you touched a tissue you think had your roommates semen on it. HIV isn't transmitted through the skin. You washed your hands. That would have killed any virus right then, if it wasn't already unviable due to being exposed to the cooler temperature and the air.

I'm only going to say this once more. You did not have a risk. HIV is transmitted via unprotected sex and needles. You really need to let this unfounded fear of yours go before it makes your life a nightmare.
