I slept with this girl using a condom and then I started fingering her Ùsing my thumb then I den went to touch my dick, so my question is, does the vaginal fluid still carries hiv even when it is exposed to air?

Hi there,

Thank you for choosing the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of information.

HIV transmission requires all of the following:

1. Body fluids containing high levels of HIV, e.g. blood, semen, and vaginal/rectal secretions,

2. A high-risk activity, e.g. unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse or the sharing of needles, and

3. Direct access of HIV-containing fluids into the bloodstream, e.g. through the vagina, anus, mucus membranes, or points of needle injection.

4. A controlled environment, which means no exposure to the air. Activities like unprotected sex or the sharing of needles are high risk activities since they don't involve any exposure to the air, while activities like mutual masturbation or frottage are negligible to no-risk activities since they involve full exposure to the air.

So to answer your question; once HIV is exposed to air, it's no longer transmittable. You touching your penis after fingering your partners vagina doesn't put you at risk of acquiring HIV.

In health,
