My lover says he got hiv from a used blade

Question

Hi, My boyfriend told me after 5 months of being with him that he got HIV from sharing a blade with another self-mutilator. Is this possible?

Answer

Hello,

Yes, this is possible. Fresh HIV-tainted blood from one person having access to a fresh cut on an HIV-negative person as a result of sharing the same blade used for self mutilation could result in HIV transmission.
