Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You cannot get HIV if you have never had sex, shared a needle or if your mom is HIV negative. You cannot get HIV from masturbating. HIV transmission can only occur when there is a direct and prolonged exposure to body fluids, semen, vaginal fluid, blood or mother to child through breast feeding. This most commonly occurs through unprotected vaginal or anal sex and sharing of needles. Casual contact, sharing utensils, drinking after someone, etc are not way for HIV transmission to occur. If you go to this link HIV101 it will take you to our page that talks about the ways in which HIV is and is not transmitted.

You have no need to worry!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
