Thanks doctor , is the risk low because of the lack of blood on my wound or because the condom was dry ?

Thanks for the reply.

Both the reasons count as you had dry wound and hiv could not survive when condom is dry.

Thanks doctor , this is my last question . The wound was fresh that day but was not bleeding at the time of intercourse . I am just paranoid because of the potential outcome . Would I have had symptoms by now ?

Even in this scenario you are at no risk so rest assured, since now you must have developed lot of illness and would have been diagnosed if you were positive. You have not contracted HIV by this interaction. You can get a test for further reassurance.

Would the chances be really high if the condom was still moist?

Still negligible chance as the wound was dry.

Best wishes.

Does it not matter with the wound even if wound was still fresh but did not have blood?
