Hello and thanks for the questions. Using condom for vaginal or anal intercourse is the best way to stop the spread of HIV from one person to another. And used correctly, a condom will not allow the virus to pass. You should be commended for your regard to sexual health and safety. Having a cut on your buttocks is not a direct access to your bloodstream and the fluids that transmitted HIV must directly enter the bloodstream of a person directly from a person living with HIV. This activity would be considered a low risk.

The high risk activities that may pass HIV are having unprotected vaginal/anal intercourse and injecting with shared needles. It is also important to remember that most people in the World are not living with HIV and you have no information that your sexual partner is actually living with HIV. An HIV test is conclusive at 12 weeks, or 84 days, post risk exposure. If your cuts and wounds do not heal or worsen, please seek medical attention.

While you are not likely to be exposed to HIV from having protected intercourse we do recommend that all sexually active persons regularly test for all sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Good luck and please let us know if you need any other information or support.

David.
