self-infected with mosquito while masturbating?
Jan 22, 2007
hello doctor, i desperately need your help. Very recently when i was masturbating i killed a mosquito with my right hand and i might have contacted with the blood of the mosquito. Then with the same right hand i touched my penis and possibly urethra and then ended up with sticky fingers. Considering that the mosquito is infected with HIV is there any possibility of me getting infected with the same??
Response from Dr. Frascino
Let me try to clarify this issue once and for all:
Chance of acquiring HIV from masturbation = nonexistent.
Chance of acquiring HIV from a mosquito (squished or otherwise) = nonexistent
Chance of acquiring HIV from masturbation and a squished mosquito = nonexistent x nonexistent which is nonexistent squared, OK?
