Hi. Thank you for your questions.

For your information HIV can be found in only certain body fluids such as blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and breast milk. These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the bloodstream (from a needle or syringe) of non-infected person for transmission to occur. Hence, from your situation the risk of transmission is there.

If your sexual partner is positive for HIV, that will put you in a higher risk of contracting HIV.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. In order for you to know more, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.
