Urinal Splash

A man who has HIV used the Urinal at a restroom. He actually does have HIV. I went to use the same urinal as he did. I am not tall, and my penis was close to the urinal. The urinal also have a rubber guard at the bottom of the bowl/hole area. Thd urinal did have a little water and/or urine floatting on the base. However the amount was small, if much.

As stated I went to use the same urinal as he did. The stream on pee was a little fast/force. The stream hit the rubber guard (perhaps the middle of the guard) that had left over urine of the man with HIV. I then saw that my penis head had some urine on it. I am now worried if some of his urine splashed on top of my penis. I am uncircumsized. I tried to clean it with tissue but I am afraid I may have made worse. I worried that while to clean it I may have gotten some of fluids/urine on under the foreskin. The trapping the virus underforeskin. Or accidently inside pee hole while cleaning myself.

I know this sounds weird. But I am sorry. I also worried some of his urine may have cotained preejaculate fluid/semen or something else that might carry the virus.

I do not that liquid did splash back while I was urinating on the urinal. and hit my penis. Could that infect me? How about what I did afterword to clean myself? did that cause problems? I am worried he did not just leave behind urine (but also preejacute fluid, semen, blood from bad kidney). I am serious. and serious responses only.

hiv is not transmitted through urine splashing out of a urinal onto a penis.

The urine was Fresh. I heard HIV could take minutes to die. Plus I am worried it had other bodily more infectious fluids after he urinated. Plus I don't think there was much water in the urinal bowl. That means his urine (and perhaps preejaculate fluid/blood) splashed into my penis. Plus My stupid attempt at cleaning. what do you think?

The HIV virus is not found in urine.  NO risk.

I thought HIV was found in urine. How about the urine have preejaculate fluid or blood. It was several drops of urine that splashed back to my penis head (I did have my foreskine over head). But then I then I tried to clean my self with tissue. I mad have gotten some fluid under foreskine and inclosed it without air. I wooried that in my attempt to clean I may have gotten some fluid in pee hole. I am worried some other fluids as stated above were in urine. Plus I read urine has hiv and can survive several minutes. Please tell the truth. This happened on Friday 8/24/12. Yesterday I felt itch on penis head. Today a little swollen in pubic area. Please tell truth.

Your fears are irrational.  No one has ever gotten HIV from using a urinal...can you imagine how many men have used urinals...WITH splashes?

Let it go!!

I just want to know if I had a risk. Taking into consideration that I wiped myself in pee hole and some may have gotten under foreskine, Taking into consideration other potential fluids. Like preejaculate/blood. The guy did have HIV. So you could understand my concern. Did I have a risk??

Just to be specifc the fluids splashed on my PENIS HEAD. and when i tried to clean my self I may have gotten some uner foreskin and on pee hole. The guy  was positive and it was a short time after he used urinal. He did not flush. I dropped the ball. I worried urine had preejaculate fluid/blood as well. Last comment I did not know you were aware of this facts.

Sorry for excessive posting. But how can I get warned, if you have previously commented on my risk? I don't understand how this works. Thanks.
