can a person be infected with hiv if a person having a live cut in his buttock and sit /rolled/slept naked in the bed where body fluid(blood or semen or vaginal) of hiv +eve person was spilled 10 minutes before. Is the transmission possible in this way, can a virus survives more than ten minutes outside the body. kindly give the answer in detail. Very anxious to know because i have gone through this situation.
It is theoretically possible but not probable - I would not worry!
