Possible Risk of HIV Transmission Through Bodily Fluid

05/09/2006

Question:

Hi. My question is this: I`m a woman who had this incident with a man. I had no underwear on and I sat on his penis (which was covered by his underwear) and some part of his underwear was wet from his semen. He also manually stimulated me and I think his finger may have had some semen on it.

I want to know if the risk of transmission of HIV would be low or high? I`m woried and sick from anxiety. Please help.

Answer:

If there was contact with body fluids, then there is a risk of transmission.
