In what way?


An open wound is one that is actively bleeding.

I did a rapid hiv test which came back negative. The counselor who did the test told me he was hiv positive not sue if I'm at risk.

georgiagail replied to fullmoone's response:
No, you are not at risk. The counselor did not bleed on you during this process (and, I'm assuming you did not have unprotected intercourse with this person either).

I don't recall the counselor bleeding that's what has me concerned

georgiagail replied to fullmoone's response:
There is no reason that the counselor would be bleeding and even if they were it would be hard to miss the blood.


Please stop worrying about this. You are not the first person to be concerned about picking up HIV while doing a screening test. But that really is a non-worry.

Hello Gail, is it possible to catch hiv through a handjob. Was at a massage parlor and one thing lead to another.

georgiagail replied to fullmoone's response:
No, getting a handjob is not a risk for HIV transmission.

How would this be? You would not be coming in contact with this persons blood or sexual fluids since (I'm assuming) they are the ones performing the services on you.
