Re-Used an already 2 times used diabetic testing lancet

Both my parents are diabetic. They tested their levels with Accu Chek Diabetes Kit with the same lancet. Foolishly I also used the same lancet. My mother(50) is the one who frequently checks her levels with it and she has used the same lancet many times before today. Could my father or me have contracted HIV or hepatitis?

No risk for HIV through a lancet. Do you suspect your mother is HIV+ ?

No she's not. And what about hepatitis B or C.

Then why ask about HIV... ???

Post your questions about hepatitis on its own forum please.

Coz I thought I might have contracted HIV. And yeah, I've asked in the hepatitis forum but no reply yet. So I asked you. Sorry for that.

It's OK. I'm sure someone will answer soon enough.
Anyway, you can't contract HIV from someone who doesn't have it. Good luck.
