vagina fluids on condom

Question: 

if someone gives blowjob and handjob with condom that have vagina fluids on and after remove the condom and give handjob and use spit as lube can u get hiv from that?

Answer: 

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about your risk of HIV acquisition given a scenario where vaginal fluid and spit is used for lube in mutual masturbation.

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be of Negligible Risk (There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission). Vaginal fluid is one of the 5 main bodily fluids that carry HIV (blood, semen, breast milk, vaginal secretion) (1). Due to this, there is technically a potential for HIV risk due to the presence of bodily fluid with direct access to your bloodstream. However, we would consider this act to be Negligible due to the volatility of HIV when exposed to environments outside of the body.

Saliva is not considered to be an avenue for HIV transmission, and in this case, is not the main concern.

When exposed to environmental surfaces for any amount of time (in this case, from the condom, to the hand, to the penis) any HIV that may have been in the vaginal fluid would be rendered inactive relatively quick. HIV outside of the body causes a rapid reduction in concentration, and is not particularly virulent in these conditions (2).

Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission refer to Physician for more personalized answers.

All the best,
