Self contraction of HIV/AIDs

Jun 26, 2015

This is embarrassing but, I was masturbating and was a little to ruff with the dildo and got some cuts on my anus. As I pulled out the dildo I guess I didn't completely clean myself out and some feces got on the cuts. I quickly cleaned and washed myself, but I am a little worried. Is it possible for me to develop and STD or HIV

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

There is no way to give HIV or STDs to yourself. Those must come from other people.

Hope this helps,
