Best Answer

Most commonly, people get or transmit HIV through sexual behaviors and needle or syringe use.

Only certain body fluids (blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), rectal fluids, vaginal fluids,
and breast milk) from a person who has HIV can transmit HIV.
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) for transmission to occur. Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, vagina, and mouth.
