I’m coming to terms with the fact I have health anxiety but I’d just like to confirm that this irrational thought really has no base in reality.
Basically I bought a pair of mesh underwear from Depop sold by a gay man. We spoke and he said some people ask him to ‘do the deed’ in the underwear and offered to do it for me, to which I declined.
My fear isn’t that he has done this, because there was no visible indication and later said he’d cleaned them before sending.
I’ve worn the pants normally and have washed them myself but recently decided to put them on for a few minutes, of which time my foreskin was retracted.
By this, I’ve somehow convinced myself that this has posed a transmission risk. I must stress too that the underwear have not been worn in 45 weeks and I believe to have washed them myself.
Basically: is there a risk of hiv because I’ve worn a pair of underwear sold by a gay man where on one occasion my foreskin was retracted? (Thus meaning if dry bodily fluid had somehow survived that it was exposed to the mucous membrane of the meatus)
