First off let me start by saying what you do is great and I appreciate the the time you take to answer questions. That being said here is my question. I was walking down the street and notices a used condom on the sidewalk where I was walking. I don't think I stepped on it but if I did is there any way It could infect if anything got on the bottom of my shoe and I walk into my apartment and my dog walks where my shoes touch and jumps on the couches where we sit? The condom looked like there was a little blood on it to. My husband is telling me not to stress it and that hiv is not transmitted that easily and would be dead by then but I can't seem to stop worrying about it. Is there any rush for other stds as well. Please answer I know an answer from you will help me...Thanks in advance!

Response from Mr. Cordova

Your husband is correct. There is absolutely no risk from the situation you describe.

In health, Richard
