am I over thinking

Question

Hi I had protected sex about 9 to 10 weeks ago and the girl bleed on me she said its from her period she is clean I haven't had any really bad scare to go get tested i just want to know can you catch HIV from a girls minstrel

Answer

Blood is capable of transmitting the virus. However, since you used a condom I would not be concerned.

Also, when referring to someone who is HIV negative, simply say that--HIV negative. To use the word "clean" implies that HIV positive people are dirty, and increases HIV related stigma.

In health,
