The Possibility Of Contracting Venereal Disease And HIV Through Sex Aids?
Greetings, doctor. U003cbr u003eI just bought a male masturbation aid. After I used it, I discovered that the bottom of the tool box was open. It turned out that even though I had just bought the device the bottom was opened while the seal bag part was still there. I am worried that the device has already been used and also I am worried that I could contract a venereal disease because I have used it. Indeed, before I use it I check the inside of the device and it is quite normal (no rutaj or marks have been used) and dry. This is my first time using sex aids.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. HIV is a disease caused by a virus, and can attack the immune system so that the body is more susceptible to disease, more severe, and heal longer even though by a simple disease. This disease is a scourge because until now, no drugs have been found that can cure his condition.
To be able to answer your question, first you need to know that HIV can be transmitted through several media, namely blood, sperm, vaginal fluid, and breast milk. So conceptually, anything that involves the entry of this liquid from the body of a person affected by HIV to someone who has not yet been exposed to HIV, has the potential to transmit HIV. Activities can be sexual, blood transfusion, alternating syringes, or from mother to child through normal birth or breastfeeding.
Then, what needs to be known next is that although dangerous, this virus cannot last long in being exposed to outside air. It could only last 15 minutes, it could be only 7 minutes, 5 minutes, or 1 minute, no expert has agreed. What is clear, the delay is said to be very short. So from this information, it's safe to say that from your story, you can't possibly get HIV from these sex toys. Because let's say someone put sperm fluid, vaginal fluid or even blood in the sex toy, the pause must have been long enough for the liquid to dry, especially for the virus to die.
Of course if you are still in doubt or just curious, you can check by doing a VCT test at a health care facility that provides it, such as a health center or certain hospital. And to prevent HIV disease from developing, the only way is not to get it. Once you have been hit, you are exposed forever and cannot be cured for now. In order not to be exposed, avoid free sex, avoid using unsterile syringes, and be loyal to your partner. So, hopefully answering your question.
