Hi sir,
IAM traumatised because of an incidence which occurred yesterday,
One of my friend was having a safety pin when we were going on an evening walk he is kind of childish he pricked it on one of our friends butts and then he pricked it on my buts and it was hard, I was wearing a lower later I saw at home their was a bump like after a mosquito bite , the friend which he pricked earlier is very high risk individual. If he has hiv what are my chances of having it.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

Your situation is considered a no risk activity and I will explain why. For HIV transmission to occur, you need 3 factors. These factors are listed in the table below.

HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection
Your situation is considered a no risk activity because it has none of the factors listed above.

As you can see in the 3 points listed above, direct access for the virus to enter the blood stream is necessary for HIV transmission to occur. The pin that pricked your friend's butt and then your butt was exposed to the air in between pricks.The reason for this is because HIV is a very weak virus that is broken down the moment it is exposed to the air. Once this occurs, the virus is no longer capable of causing infection. Therefore if you case, there is no way the virus could have gone from your friend, the pin and then on to you.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions or check this[ website](http://smartsexresource.com/) for further information.

Best Wishes,
