All these messages were circulated in year 2011, 2013 and 2017. As these messages keep on circulating online almost each year, so it is baseless. Usually it is circulated using social media sites and emails.

Our conclusion – If we study the HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), then we will come to know that the HIV can be transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen or vaginal fluids.

So, this rumour is highly illogical and baseless.  It’s just created to confuse people and get page hits.
