HIV Prevention and Testing > Do I Have HIV?

Hiv blood in ketchup packet


I had lunch with a woman at kfc 11 weeks ago. I went to the restroom and came back and then ate my food including ketchup from the sealed ketchup packets that were there. After talking to the woman I came to the conclusion that she is the type of person that would probably willingly infect others with hiv by devious means if she herself has hiv.

I'm now at 11 weeks since that date and I am dreading that she may have infected me with hiv.

Can drinking hiv Infected blood from a sealed packet infect someone?

Jim Allen:
It's not an HIV risk, move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms; testing is the only way to know.

Kind regards
