Customer Question

Hello,
I have a question regarding transmission of HIV through men's toilet. I know HIV doesn't transmit through toilet but today I went to a public restroom which wasn't that clean and I noticed some white stuff in there. I don't why I just keep thinking that in case I had an exposure of any sort. Is this an exposure at all?

Hi,

Im sorry tyo hear about your situation. Well HIV is NOT transmitted in this manner, even if the restroom was not clean and had impurities present in it, the chances of you acquiring HIV via this method are absolutely ZERO. In order for HIV to be transmitted you would have to come into direct contact with blood, semen or other bodily fluids and that contact has to be with the mucus membranes of your body. Which means if you touch these secretions with your skin, you will NOT get HIV. So you can rest assurred that this is NOT an exposure of any sort and you will NOT get HIV in this manner.
