Hi, this probably is stupid but I’m kinda freaking out. I donated Plasma today and when I got to the chair I noticed a few drips, they looked dried but a little shiny. I asked the girl if it was blood so she looked close and taped it with her finger (she was wearing gloves) she looked at it and said it was probably just saline or something and had me sit down and continue. I will say she didn’t seem concerned at all and DID NOT change her gloves. From what I could tell nothing came up onto her gloves and that’s why she blew it off.
We continued and touched my arm where my vein is and then cleaned that spot and then continued to use a new needle and poke me. I did the donation and left.
I’ve been home for a few hours and can’t seem to let it go, is there a chance I got HIV? Maybe something microscopic got on her glove and maybe that somehow got on the needle and then into my bloodstream, is that possible or ridiculous??
I’m super nervous, please let me know what you think!
