can hiv virus be transmitted through drinks/juice.(contaminated)?

Question

i'm worried, a freind of mine, gave me a cup of juice when i visited, but i have been always suspicious of her actions(maybe she puts her contaminated blood in the juice).

can hiv virus be transmitted through drinks/juice(i.e in my case)..? please reply.

Answer

Hi HIV cannot be transmitted in this manner.

HIV transmission occurs through a direct and prolonged exchange of body fluid, semen, vaginal fluid, blood or mother to child through breast feeding. Casual contact, sharing utensils, drinking after someone, etc are not ways for HIV to be transmitted. So if she did in fact put blood into your juice that had HIV in it there is no way for you to become infected in this manner.

You are HIV free from this experience.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
