HIV

Hi there

not sure if this is silly... met a girl in a bar and by the end of the night was quite drunk... when i said i was going she handed me 2 ecstacy pills in a tight cealed plastic little bag... i took them later that night... is there anyway that blood could have been on the pills and i have swallowed them and i catch hiv? i have never taken them before and i am worried sick...

They could have been soaked in blood and wouldn't have been a risk of contracting HIV.

Okay thank you Teak - is this because it doesnt survive outside the host? does it being in a cealed plastic bag change things because of the temperature at all?

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child

okay great... one last thing - could you catch hep c that way - is it true it can survive longer outside its host? or does it too need to be blood to blood open wound?
