Hi this is my previous question

http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-hiv-6

I asked this qn and got 2 different answers. One is NO risk and one with low risk. One states that since HIV blood is exposed to air, the virus dies and thus it's not transferable. Another states that it is low risk due to transfer of infected bodily fluids.

Can someone help me to clarify? I'm really in a panic and whirlwind due to these extremely different answers. There is a big difference between low risk and NO risk. Who should i trust? How would I know whose info is correct? Why are the answers different? It's difficult to concentrate at work and it's affecting my ability to do things cause I worry constantly.

Please help me to explain and understand

Hi there,

Thanks again for contacting us. Please share with me the link where someone told you it was low risk and I will correct it. You can rest assured that it is NO RISK. HIV has NEVER been transmitted through a fork. It is transmitted through unprotected anal/vaginal intercourse or sharing injection needles. It does not live on surfaces or objects. The answer given here is absolutely correct (http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-hiv-6) and I would not spend a second longer worrying about this if I were you.

I hope this has given you peace of mind; however, if you have further questions please don't hesitate to ask.

To your health
