If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
1 month ago I came in contact with a used condom. I don't remember exactly what happened but all I know is I touched it, and that some of the sperm from inside the condom may have come in contact with my urethra. I have read many websites on HIV transmission and all of them are very different, some say HIV dies when it hits the air, others say it can live outside the body for hours. I have 2 main questions.
1) Let's say I put the used condom on my penis, and It was containing someone else's sperm that then got into my urethra. Am I at risk of contracting HIV?
2) Let's say I just touched the body fluid then touched my urethra, am I at risk of HIV in this situation?
