Is skin in anus/rectum more sensitive for hiv transmission than normal skin if is irritated, damaged etc? During normal touch or massage (not sexual acts).
Hi, and thanks for writing in. HIV is passed through blood and body fluid (semen, vaginal fluid and breast milk). This means that it is passed from person to person through sexual contact (vaginal and anal intercourse), or sharing needles to inject intravenous drugs with a person who has HIV.

The string attached to my penis has torn off and a piece of it is still in contact with the tip of my penis, just not the foreskin. What can I do in this situation?

Hi Having unprotected anal sex like unprotected vaginal sex is a good way to pass HIV if you’re having sex with someone who has HIV. To get HIV you would need to have sex with someone who has HIV. If your partner does not have HIV there is no risk to HIV. You could have unprotected anal sex and there would be no risk. HIV would not be created/made by doing a certain sex act. For someone to get... Read Full Answer
