Low pressure, low...: Low pressure means low risk of fluids getting into one's body; means no worries. Low water pressure would be similar to taking a bath, where the tap water is presumed clean and safe. If worried, one can just run the hand-held bidet for 10 seconds before spraying oneself. If unable to stop worrying about this, just use diaper wipes intead of the hand-held bidet. Diaper wipes aren't just for babies.

No: If you have a cut, sore or fissure in your penis or anorectal area and it comes in contact with blood or bloody secretion then there is a potential for transmission! HIV is not transmitter from infected soiled contaminated shower water!

No entry: Water will not go back up either the anus or penis because there are muscle sphincters in both that prevent that.
