Pregnant and scared pricked self when opening safety pin
Apr 6, 2010

Recently I bought some baby clothes at a big used clothing sale. When I went to take the price tags off 19 days later I pricked myself when opening the safety pin that the tag was attached to. If someone else pricked themself with the same pin woudl I be at risk for HIV since the pin had been closed? I just want to make sure I don't need to be tested since I am pregnant. Thanks so much.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Please refer HIV related questions to the HIV forum. No you would not be at risk.
