Vaginal fluid touched penis after removing condom

Question: 

hi, i recently had a protected vaginal sex with an independent escort. I ejaculate inside her but I'm sure there was no failure on condom. After that she removed my penis and start to unroll condom with a cloth. While unrolling the condom with the cloth, it touched my penis head. My concern is vaginal fluid outside condom must got on the cloth so what are the chances of HIV transmission ??

Answer: 

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for you HIV/AIDS related health information.

It sounds like you are concerned about your risk of HIV transmission.

Protected vaginal sex is considered a Low Risk activity. This means that it can present a potential for HIV transmission because it can involve an exchange of body fluids. There have been a few reports of infection attributed to these activities (usually under certain identifiable conditions).

I understand that you are concerned that your penis may have come into contact with vaginal fluids while removing your condom. Here are a few things to consider:

  • HIV is a Human-to-Human virus. It cannot be transmitted to you by an object, for example, the outside of a condom.

  • HIV needs a human host to survive. Once HIV is outside of the body and exposed to oxygen it can no longer transmit. This means that any vaginal fluids on the outside of the condom were outside of the body, exposed to oxygen and could no longer transmit HIV.

I would encourage you to check out the following resources about HIV:

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
