Customer Question
I have a transmission...

I have a transmission question about HIV

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Ok so 16 days ago I had protected sex with a sex worker. She was Vietnamese. I didn't insert my penis without a condom however it did touch her vagina for maybe a minute. I also gave her oral sex

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this?

I am on PEP which was administered 48 hours after the encounter

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No other information but that is not my question regard me I wanted to ask that with the oral and her fluids being on my hand.....how long is the virus still active

Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

It depends upon what you mean when you ask about whether the virus is still active. Do you mean that the virus is able to infect a third person if you were to contact them with your mouth or hand?

If this is not what you mean, could you clarify what you mean?

HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 10 months ago

I had asked for clarification of what you mean by active and have not heard back.

If by active, you mean that the virus is able to infect a third person if you were to contact that third person, the answer is that the virus will not remain active for any significant length of time, and certainly not long enough to transmit the virus to a third person.

If HIV could be transmitted to a third person via this mechanism, then virgins could acquire HIV by this mechanism, and that simply does not happen.

If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
