HIV never spreads by genital surface contacts, there has to be an unprotected penetration for HIV to transmit. Even if some of the vaginal fluid contacted your penis outside, you should have no reason to worry about.
HIV never transfers and infects outside its host. Its capability to infect others, dies down as soon as it is out and exposed to ambient atmosphere
You do not need a test for this particular exposure because your risk remains non existent
Thank you for your reply. I hope that I can also put a rest on possible STD infection?
Any STD questions you have need to be posted in the STD forum.
Thanks Teak for your advise. I have read many comments that you have posted and find it extremely valuable and reassuring. It gave me great peace of mind.
Sorry Diver58 for further clarification. My major concern lies with my penis having fungal infection and foreskin + penis head may have broken skin for potential infection. If you mention that the HIV virus would die down as soon as it is out and exposed to ambient atmosphere, then the broken skin will not put me into any risk as well. Thank you in advance for your patience and kind reply.
Please stop scaring people, who are already under stress. No need for HTLV 1 and 2 test, since this geographical oriented virus transmits through unprotected sex, which is missing from this story. Secondly, this is an HIV forum, if you want to share your views on other STD's, please use the relevant forum
Thank you again Diver58. No unprotected sexual penetration just some penile and vaginal contact on genital surface. penis with fungal infection with skin abrasion that may present HIV virus to enter bloodstream directly is my main scare. Other than that, I am happy with Diver58's initial reply. Diver58 would you be able to advise if my risk will be higher with this skin abrasion that may present HIV virus to enter bloodstream directly?
For my peace of mind I will go perform a test in week 6. I am living in South East Asia so I am not sure if there are 4th generation test. If my week 6 test is negative, can I conclude that I am not infected of HIV? Thank you in advance.
