HIV transmission to others concern

Jun 30, 2012


I had unprotected sex a few months ago, and while I know I didnt contract any STDs, I did not get tested for HIV. I had blood on my finger after scratching a bug bite too much, and was wondering if I could have infected anyone else (if I did have HIV) by touching a door knob or something else in my office and someone else touching it later? Thanks.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi No you cannot and having unprotected sex puts you at risk for HIV. Anyone who has unprotected sex should be tested.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
