Can I Give Myself HIV?

Can I Give Myself HIV?

I was using the bathroom while I was on my menstrual cycle. When I stood up, I noticed a drop of my own blood on the toilet seat. I wiped it up with toilet paper, but I don't remember if I reused the paper to wipe myself. Could I have given myself something through my own blood?
