Does sharing vial of steroid(testosterone 400) risky for HIV AND hapitatis
Feb 11, 2013

Hi I am anxious. I used to take steroid, i never shared needles, all the needles were packeged from cvs new and i used to swap the injection site with alcohole. But i shared the vial of Steroid (testosterone 400). Can i catch Hiv or hepatitis from it? The guy that i shared the vial with him said he never used same needle when he put it in the vial!!!!,,,


Response from Dr. Taylor

Sharing any type of injection equipment including the vial of steroid poses a risk. I suggest geting tested for HIV and HCV.

There are concerning consequences of injecting yourself with testerone without a doctor's involvement. I hope you can find a doctor you can trust and discuss this.
