Cut on finger and toilet seat
      #242251 - 09/22/08 09:55 PM

thanks for the responses! Much appreciated! Another 2 questions regarding HIV transmission -

1. I had a cut on my finger where I was fingering my girlfriend - does this pose as a risk for HIV for her to get infected if I had the virus or me getting infected if she had HIV?

2.i went to use the toilet and the tip of my penis touched the the surface of the bowl? does this pose as a risk to hiv or any other stds?

thank you

1. Yes it does, if active bleeding was involved. A superficial, non-bleeding wound should not pose a significant risk (HIV needs to get directly into the blood stream).
2. HIV has never been transmitted through communal use of toilets, penises touching bowls or not. HIV does not survive well in the environment.
