HIV and AIDS
Can You Contract HIV From A Toilet Seat?
Can you get HIV/AIDS from a toilet seat that has menstruation blood on it?
It doesn`t seem very likely, but if someone had a cut or abrasion in an area that could come into contact with infected menstrual blood when they sat on the toilet seat, then it might not be impossible. I guess the best thing to do is to look before you sit.
