general sanitary stand point

Aug 31, 2013

What is a general sanitary stand point. What is the risk of getting infected to HIV from these places. Thank you in advance.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi I'm not sure what you are asking. But a quick HIV 101 review would be good measure. HIV transmission occurs when there is a direct exchange of body fluid. This fluid is blood, semen, vaginal fluid or mothers breast milk/mother to child. This is experienced through unprotected sex or sharing needles. You cannot get HIV from casual contact, meaning through sharing utensils, using toilet seats, etc.....

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
