Dear Doctor I visited a massage parlour 7 weeks ago where the masseuse performed naked grinding (rubbed her vagina on my penis) for few minutes. There was no penetration or insertion. Not sure if her vaginal fluids came in contact with my penis or foreskin Am I at risk for hiv.

Hi, Thanks for your question. Rubbing bodies together have no risk for HIV transmission. However, this can be different for some STIs. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. If you live in NSW, you can find the nearest place to get tested here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/where-to-get-tested/.

Can i gert hiv if i dint sperm inside jurin sex ?

Hi, Thanks for your question. Pulling out before ejaculating is not an effective method for preventing HIV transmission. This is because HIV is still present in pre-cum, rectal fluids and vaginal/front hole fluids. The most effective strategies to prevent HIV transmission are condoms, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) and undetectable viral load (UVL). You can read more about all of these options on our website here: https://endinghiv.org.au/stay-safe/

Hi, Can you catch hiv from kissing breasts if someone has previously ejaculated over them. Even though there is no sign of semen. Thanks

Hi, Thanks for your question. We noticed you’ve been interchanging between different pronouns to talk about your sexual partner. It’s important for us to affirm a person’s identity by referring to them using the pronouns that they use to describe themselves. This could be he/him, she/her or they/them. If you are unsure of what pronouns a person uses, you can politely ask them in conversation. HIV cannot be transmitted through kissing. Oral sex also is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission. However, this can be different for STIs. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. If you have tested positive for gonorrhoea, we highly recommend visiting your doctor or sexual health clinic to access treatment as soon as possible, and that you also get in contact with all your sexual partners in the last 2 months so that they can go get tested too. If you have any more questions, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where someone can answer your questions over the phone.

If some one pre cum or cum who have positive get contact with our skin there is any risk

Hi , Thanks for your question. Most people living with HIV are aware of their status, on treatment and sustaining an undetectable viral load (UVL). This means that they cannot transmit HIV to another person. You can read more about UVL on our blog post here: https://endinghiv.org.au/blog/risk-reduction-strategies-uvl/. Although pre cum and cum are bodily fluids that can carry HIV, it cannot transmit HIV through contact with skin. If you have more questions, you can also call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where someone can answer your questions over the phone.

Hi, Thanks for your question. Condoms are a highly effective barrier for the transmission of HIV and most STIs. Without condoms, oral sex is still considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission. However, this is different for STIs. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic.

Is it possible for infected with aids show the signs immediately after two week

Hi, Thanks for your question. A person cannot be infected with AIDS but can be infected with HIV. AIDS refers to the range of specific illness that a person living with HIV who is not on treatment may get when their immune system becomes weakened. Symptoms for HIV infections vary from person to person and generally start appearing within the first 1-2 months. You can read about early symptoms of HIV here: https://endinghiv.org.au/blog/7-symptoms-of-hiv-early-stages/.

Hi DR. I did sex with massage girl using two condom for 1 min. Two days later I did HIV AB test for her and she was negative What is the probability to gain HIV if she was still recent infection however the condom was not broken and the sex was only for 1 min

Hi, Thanks for your question. When used correctly, condoms are highly effective in preventing HIV transmission. HIV tests have a window period of up to 3 months. This means it takes up to 3 months between the time of the test and possible exposure for the result to be conclusive. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. For more information, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where someone can answer your sexual health questions.
