I was helping a injured person when I came in contact with his blood, even though I washed my hands after after helping him 2 things happened which are making me worried a lot 1. When I was helping him (before washing my hands) my ID card slipped & I took it when there was a lot of blood on my hand & I kept it in my pants pocket.
2. When I reached my room, (after 5 minutes) of helpling him, my friends were watching porn, & I have this strange problem, whenever I watch porn I immediately ejaculate & yes I ejaculated in my pants only
After sometime when I was changing I took out my card from pocket & there were blood marks on it
I want to know when I ejaculated in my pants some of the semen must have come in contact with blood on card(i was wearing only shorts), is it possible that due to this exchange of fluids Hiv transmission can happen. I know it was not direct contact but amount of blood on my hand while I kept it in pocket was very high (that's why blood marks on card were clearly visible) some blood might have swept through thin cloth of shorts & came in contact with my penis.
What is the risk in my case

Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

You sound pretty worried about your situation, and we hope our answer provides you with some relief. The short answer is that you are at no risk of acquiring HIV:

For a risk of acquiring HIV to exist, 3/3 parts must be present in an exposure:

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
In your situation:

* there were a lot of body fluids present, but, they still cannot pass on HIV after exposure to the air
* there was no direct access to the bloodstream; HIV can only be passed on from human-to-human, and not from, human-to-object-to-human (e.g. through your pants)
* there was no high-risk activity involved; the exposure you described did not include unprotected sexual intercourse, sharing needles, or any other risk factors that may suggest an HIV test is required.


We trust we have answered your questions and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

Sincerely,

Marta
