About a week ago i fingered my own anus using a finger that hadnt been washed for a few hours. My nails were blunt and i had no cuts that i was aware of. I also used my own spit as lube. Should i be worrried about hiv or infection?

    Is this even a serious post? You are worried you have caught HIV from yourself who doesn't have HIV??

    If this is a serious post, I'm sorry. You have nothing to worry about at all and that is all I need to say.

    Have a good day

      Still no need to worry. HIV doesn't live on door handles, it doesn't have the ability to live outside of a host (a living thing). Take our advice. You are fine. But I think you should stop fingering your anus in public places. Not great.

      That's exactly what I was going to comment. trying not to be judgemental but getting even your fecal germs on the cubical handles etc is a much greater likelihood after such activity than another who has just had a BM. another reason to use tissue on the knob I guess.

      2 sexual healthrn is right its called sexually transmitted diseases for a reason because they are transmitted during sexual activity with another?!

      Also if they could live on objects they would just be called diseases and the majority of the world would have these diseases , as it would spread like wildfire

      Louis,you are going round in circles.  You are fine.  If you think there is a problem,but you dont want to give us any details then it probably doesnt relate to the episode you have told us about.

       If you put your fingers in your mouth [for spit] after touching anything in a public toilet you may get a gut infection,but not an STD.
