hiv/aids or hepatitis
Oct 29, 2004

i got my navl pierced behind my moms back and i didn't watch the guy while he set up every thing so now i'm scared that i might have got something are there any signs of hiv/aids or hepatitis that i should look out for?

Response from Dr. McGovern

If you had your piercing in a reputable place it should not be an issue at all. If you are concerned about the reuse of needles, then I would go for testing at a public health clinic.
