how long does hiv virus stay alive outside the body
six week ago i went to a massage parlor and had a protected oral sex wita a girl. thenshe gave me a towel to wipe of my penis and i wiped my penis very well and now i am worried that what if there would be blood or semen on the towel and now i am infected with hiv.and recently i found that the virus doesnt survive for more than 2 minutes out side the human body.If this is true then how the hiv clinic do the examine of hiv with a sample of blood. While taking the sample from the body and goes to be tested it takes more than 5 to 30 minutes. Then how the virus survive in these time of period out side the body. I also visited a site that says the hiv virus do not survive too long out side the body has been proven wrong. Here is the site http://www.aids-is-real.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=146
