Urine & HIV
Hi Doc
Can you get HIV from urine that come in contact with your mucous membranes? I went to the public restroom, didn't sit down, finished and wiped then stepped away from toilet to finish getting dressed. When I flushed I noticed drop falling from seat to floor, not sure if I was the culprit, then I got worried that maybe a drop got onto my undies or sanitary pad that I didn't notice. Is this a risk for HIV? I am really worried about this.
Thank you doc.
