HIV and urine - please help
      #21032 - 08/19/01 03:34 AM

I know little about HIV and how it is transmitted and yesterday something happened that made me begin to worry. I was using a public restroom when a drunk kid (I live in a college town) came to the urinal next to me. he was stumbling and when he swayed, his urine hit the edge of the urinal and splashed onto my leg. I felt 4 or 5 drops and immediately washed off the parts of my leg where i felt the drops with soap and water. now i am afraid because i have a few scabs on my leg and im worried that i may have contracted HIV...please, anyone who has any information for me, please help. thank you!!

From everything ive read on HIV transmission(which is a lot now) HIV can only be transfered through pre-cum. semen, vaginal fluid, and blood. You cannot Get HIV from urine. its impossible. You have no risk for HIV ask any doctor or HIV specialist and they will tell you the same thing.

DON'T WORRY!!!!!!!!!! IT WOULD BE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTRACT HIV FROM FOUR DROPS OF URINE THAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE TOUCHED SCABS.IT IS PRETTY FAR FETCHED.... IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE STRESSING YOURSELF OUT FOR NOTHING AT ALL. TRY TO HET SOME COUNSELING FOR THE UNDERLYING PROBLEMS BECAUSE HIV IS NOT ONE OF THEM
