Can 1 catch STDs via toilet paper?
worryingfreak posted:
Hi everyone, This may sound dumb or ignorant to yall, but I am just another paranoid individual who needs advice. Two days ago while I was using a public bathroom, I was cleaning my private part (female) and noticed that there was a fuzz/fabric on the piece of toilet paper I was using. I didn't have black panties on, so the fuzz/fabric was not from me. I'd like to know what is the chance of getting STDs from toilet paper that might have been used. Thanks!

You believe this toilet paper was previously used? How? Gail

Gail, I wasn't sure if the toilet paper had been used. But I can't figure out how a piece of fuzz/fabric could end up on the toilet paper. Ever since I found out I'm pregnant, I've became more paranoid than ever. From your post, it seems like you've been in the healthcare for a long time, can you help me to ease my mind? Thank you!
