Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from your question, you are asking about how HIV is transmitted.

HIV is transmitted when HIV-positive bodily fluids (only blood, seminal fluids, rectal secretions, vaginal fluids, breast milk) come into direct contact with the bloodstream (vagina, anus, urethra, other mucosal membranes, point of needle injection, open sores/cuts), without being exposed to oxygen.

Here are some more links to information about HIV transmission.

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Sara
