in depression ! HELP PLEASE ! aksing 4th time !

Feb 10, 2014

I am a 15 year old high schooler who masturbated with dirty hands only. Always. It was not mutual masturbation but my hands were UNWASHED. Please remember, that I have done it like a 100 times. While wiping out the semen I must have touched the internal penis part and so must have transmitted HIV virus into my genitals. My hands WERE DRY but they could have had small quantities of other's saliva or blood (dried) or small quantities of semen or tears, etc through which AIDS is transmitted.

Though this is highly improbable, yet possible. Please REPLY ! There could have been small quantities of semen, etc on my hands dry or wet but in very small quantities that could have gone into my penis !

AM I AT RISK ? please reply sooon !

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

HIV can only be transmitted between two people. HIV also dies when it dries. When we take those two things together there's no way to be infected with what you're talking about.

HIV was not on your hands when you wiped the semen from your penis, we know this for a fact.

Hope this helps,
