Dear Sirs! I understand how bizarre my question can sound,

This answer was rated:

Dear Sirs!I understand how bizarre my question can sound, given the circumstances, but still it is an urgent matter for me.I was staying in a hotel and masturbated in a bathroom (in my room).
I fear that I could have obtained HIV, if some semen or blood of the previous visitor had been on the facilities (or on the soap, which was dry and in the box and was not exposed to
fresh air or light) and then came in contact with my penis (or some small wounds on penis or hands, if there were some, I do not remember their presence though).Can you look at it seriously and answer (with explanation), what is the probability for me to have obtained HIV (or other disease)? Even small real probability frightens me.Thank you for your prospective reply, I really appreciate your help.P.S. I have OCD, but I am really not sure that my fears are caused by it.P.S.P.S. I have also caught a strong chill after returning from the city where I stayed (Kyiv in Ukraine), but I think it is caused by a cold snowy weather and my not wearing a hat, and not by HIV.
