1. I have a girl friend that I have not verify her HIV status she always want me to suck her breast even if we did not have sex, I used condom when I want to have sex with but suck her breast without protection, I am seriously fearing that if she is a HIV positive what is my faith not transmitting to me though the breast sucking

2. I have sex with woman that I don't know her status but the fluid of the vagina touching my outer skin I am afraid if she is positive can the fluid pass through the skin hair hole?

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from your question, you are asking about the possibility of HIV transmission after engaging in protected sex. Based on the information provided, this scenario is determined to be Low Risk (evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met).

For HIV transmission to be possible, three components must be met (see below).

Helpline Transmission Equation .jpg
HIV transmission requires the presence of HIV positive fluid (such as semen, vaginal fluid, pre-cum, rectal fluid, breastmilk, etc), coupled with a High, Low, or Negligible Risk activity that provides the virus with direct access to the bloodstream.

While you did have protected sex, It's important to remember that even with consistent condom usage, the risk of HIV transmission is not reduced to zero (1). This is due to a variety of factors, including improper use and potential breakage of the condom, thus giving HIV positive fluid direct access to the bloodstream. Therefore, there is a Low Risk of transmission in this case. 

You also asked about the risk of transmission after engaging in breast sucking. Assuming there was no breastmilk present, this scenario can be considered No Risk as there was no exchange of bodily fluids. Thus, the transmission equation is not satisfied and there is no risk of transmission in this case. However, if breastmilk was present, this would be considered a High Risk scenario, as breastmilk is considered an HIV transmissible fluid.

Recommendation: Refer to a health care provider for HIV testing.
