HIV Anxiety Support User Group

About This Group:

This support group is for those who are suffering from stress or anxiety associated with uncertain HIV status. HIV anxiety is extremely isolating for those who are going through it, as it is often very difficult to discuss with friends and family members. This group is provided for sufferers of HIV anxiety to discuss their fears in a supportive environment. Those with anxiety over non-HIV STDs are also welcome. For personal advice concerning HIV risk, testing, and prevention, please post in the HIV Prevention Community.

lancet

Hi i have very bad anxiety from this. I wasnt feeling good at work and someone checked my blood sugar with their stuff. I'm not sure if the lancet was reused or not. I think about this all the time. Can you catch hiv from a used lancet?

No, a used lancet CANNOT transmit HIV because blood gets exposed to the elements and renders the virus inactive.
