Transmission Of HIV When Having Sex During Menstruation?
Doctor … HIV transmission during intercourse during menstruation can occur, because of what? I beg your answer 🙏🙏🙏
Thank you for the question.
HIV virus (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) can be transmitted if you have contact between body fluids with other HIV sufferers. The body fluids in question can be blood, anal fluid, vaginal fluid, penile fluid, as well as breast milk.
Any sexual relations with HIV sufferers can put you at risk of contracting HIV, not just during menstruation. It's just that, during menstruation, vaginal lubricants are generally produced less, making it vulnerable to injury around the vagina or penis during intercourse. Therefore, the risk of HIV transmission can be greater.
However, if the sexual intercourse is not carried out with HIV sufferers, of course this virus will not necessarily appear by itself. To get HIV transmission during sexual intercourse, then you need to have sex with people with HIV.
It's just that, not a few HIV sufferers who do not realize that they have HIV, for example because of clinical symptoms that are not typical, so he does not feel the need to get tested. Therefore, you should remain vigilant, and not have sex except with a partner with a clear sexual history.
It should also be known, that in addition to causing prone injury to the penis and vagina, sexual intercourse during menstruation is also not recommended, because it can make the genitals feel painful, swollen, and prone to contracting other infections. Not just HIV, various other infections can also be transmitted through sexual intercourse during menstruation. So, you should be patient waiting for menstruation is over if you want to have sex huh ..
I hope this helps.
