Am I Infected?
      #26834 - 01/10/02 05:33 PM

This may be a silly question to some of you, however I have become very concerned. About 2 weeks ago, at the gym I went to take a shower. I used a shower that a man had just come out of about 10 min before. As I was taking my shower, I looked down and saw what appeared to be semen on the shower floor. I assume the guy before me had masterbated. My feet are somewhat dryskined and have slight cracking. Here in the last day or so, I have felt sore muscle and back pain as well as being very tired. Is it possible that I may have become infected? Thanks for your replies.

Not a silly question when you are so concerned

But no, I don't think it is possible that you have become infected.

Why?

Well, I don't think you need to worry about the fact that you probably didn't stand, with what probably wasn't an open wound on your foot, on what what probably wasn't semen, which probably wasn't from an HIV+ man, which after ten minutes probably wouldn't contain live virus anyway.

Your sore muscle, back pain and tiredness sound like a combination of your gym exercises plus your current worries, which trust me, are totally unfounded. You're fine. HIV just doesn't get transmitted the way you're worrying about.

If it can be transmitted this way then we're all lost
