HIV transmission possibility from HIV testing?
Hi,
I am aware I just posted in this forum, but I had one more -slightly outrageous- question.
If you are getting blood drawn from your arm, is it possible to contract HIV this way?
I realize HIV would be unable to survive on the outside of a needle, and the inside would be pulling blood OUT of your arm. In addition, there is usually a little bit of bleeding OUT of your arm afterwards.
In the highly unlikely chance that clinic workers re-used a needle, is it even at all possible to contract HIV in this manner?
I apologize if my anxiety is frustrating for health care professionals.
