Contracting HIV
      02/25/01 09:18 AM

Recently my husband found out he is HIV+. At this time I am HIV - but I have only had one test and no viral load test done. We know he was negative in the beginning of last year and now he ha HIV. When I asked him about how he got this he told me that during the summer he visited some of those 24 hr newstands/porno shops. He says he masterbated to videos there and only once did he let someone touch him and they only did it a short time with their hand. He says he didn't ejaculate and hasn't engaged in any other behavior. He did tell me that he he knows he got semen on his hand from the seat he sat on once but he immediately washed his hand and knows he didn't have any open wounds. I understand what he is telling me -what I can't make sense out of is that, as a healthcare worker, I know this small amount of exposure should not equal a diagnosis of HIV+. Has anyone else heard of someone getting this disease in such a manner?
