Dear all

After reciving an handjob with condom, the woman took of the condom an cleaned my penis. My fear: can I infekted with HIV when she would have a little cut with blood on the hand during taking off the condom and clean my penis.

Thank you so much

Hello and thank you for using the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.

No, you are not at risk for acquiring HIV based on the above scenario. Let me attempt to explain why. There needs to be a risky activity for the virus to be passed. These include unprotected vaginal or anal sex and needle sharing during drug use. The HIV virus is very fragile and dies very quickly when exposed to oxygen. There also would need to be a lot of blood/virus present to even pose a theoretical risk. If you weren't sure if there was blood present, there is no risk present. The HIV virus needs direct access to the bloodstream, and cannot penetrate unbroken skin. This scenario is zero risk for the passing of HIV.

Thanks for your question and please feel free to write back to us at any time.
