HIGHLY Unlikely.: Hiv is spread by directly sharing infected body fluids such as semen and blood. This most commonly happens during sexual intercourse or when sharing needles during injection drug use. Any potential risk of spreading HIV by using an elecric razor is so small as to be impossible to estimate (essentially no risk). If you have concerns, then do not share the razor, as it may put your mind at ease. ...Read more

The question is what do you value more, a short term good time, or your life? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

HIV is most often transmitted by infected blood or sexual secretions; however, some cases of oral transmission have been reported also. I suggest getting an HIV test to put your mind to rest. ...Read more
