Joggen, i need your help. I need your opinion and assessment regarding my case.
About a week ago, i went to use the public toilet for no 2. I usually experience bleeding from anal fissures when i go no 2 (due to my hemorrhoids) and it was the case also this time.
Half way through wiping, I realized that the paper was damp, and there were some red blot on the roll, so this could have came into contact directly with the bleeding fissures on my anus. (I also noticed my own blood on the paper)
I have been worried over the risk of catching HIV from using that toilet paper. I am afraid that someone who used the roll before me may have poured infected blood into the roll, or he could have ejected sperm into the roll.
My question is:
Could HIV transmit this way? Assuming that the toilet paper was soaked with HIV infected blood or sperm.
I heard that if blood/sperm come into direct contact with an open wound (in this situation, it is my anal fissures's bleeding), it could transmit HIV. Is that true?
Thanks Joggen, I would really appreciate your answer
