Resolved Question:

Hi, a few days ago I had protected sex with a CSW. After sex I removed my condom and cleaned my penis with the same napkin that CSW had used to clean her vagina before me. What is the likeliness of catching HIV from this?

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

HIV is a very fragile and weak virus and will die in a few seconds after exposure to the air and environment. So after she cleaned her vagina the HIV virus would have died on exposure to air and will not infect you even when you used the same napkin to clean your penis. So, you are at no risk of HIV infection due to this incident. The likelihood of catching HIV from this is zero.

Take care.

Hi Doctor, thanks for your response. Just to clarify, I cleaned my penis immediately after she had cleaned her vagina with the same napkin and she had vaginal fluid on it. Am I still fully safe? Please confirm. Thanks.

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

Yes, you are still safe. In an open environment even if you cleaned immediately you would not be at risk. In just a few seconds the HIV virus will die. HIV is not so easily transmitted and therefore you are safe from HIV infection.
