blood on finger
« on: December 29, 2006, 11:12:23 AM »
hello, i have a serious question...

do you know if the virus can live for more then a hour
outside the body, because i got blood of my new friend (after having sex) on my finger and more than 1 hour later i put this finger against/in my anus.... so afraid because i didnt wash my finger or anything but did see it ,
is this going to matter?

I have read the transmission lesson....

ok that is satisfying,
because when i read around in this forum, i suppose it is only inside the body where transmission happens
am I right? and because there are no receptive cells in the mouth for infection, so the risk is very low?

Yes.  Do try and move on.
LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A

Is blood completely uninfectious when I have cracked lips or when it comes in your mouth?
I mean hiv or other std's?
