Re: Hiv transmission through contact of vaginal fluid with an open wound?

I was so focused on my genitals exposure to the virus that I completely ignored the risk from the open injury I had. I was so focused on safe sex and using a condom, it did not occur to me that the open injury in my back was the real risk from my exposure. It all adds up now, because i had STDs test after a penis swab and it was all negative because my penis was never exposed. The symptoms i had were coming from the HIV infection from the open wound i had in my back. It is so unfortunate and sad to be infected this while i was thinking all the time i had a no risk encounter.
