HIV or Hepatitus
Dec 26, 2002

Can I get HIV from weights at the gym from someone's sweat. After I got back from the gym I took a shower and I was having menstral cycle and I was rinsing my private parts and I forgot to wash my hands. My hands were in direct contact with my private parts. Is there anyway I could get HIV or Hepatitus from this? Please let this e-mail remain anonymous. Thank you.

Response from Ms. Breuer

And off you go to the transmission section of this website for the answer to this question, which is no. The writers there have gone into detail; I have to invest my time on workplace questions rather than transmission questions. You'll be glad you checked it out.
