HIV Toilet Seat Transmission (WORRIED)

Hi

On 4/5, I noticed there was blood on the toilet seat. I never sat on the seat, and I cleaned up the blood with Clorox antibacterial wipes. Afterwards, pardon my graphic language, but I then wiped myself(as if I did #2) in the tub. Will I get HIV/AIDS?

Simply, no.

HIV is not transmitted by the environment, like toilet seats nor is it transmitted by indirect contact like wiping yourself with the same hand you cleaned up a blood stain with.

The only realistic ways to get HIV are unprotected sexual intercourse and sharing IV needles. You need that level of intimate contact to be at risk for HIV.

Also, I don't remember what hand I used to wipe up the blood, but I never saw any blood flow from my fingers.
