This isn't about sex but rather STI's and such so I figure it's ok to put it here. Ok, I was out today, first to the doctors then to the mall (reason for doctors visit isn't relevent btw) and at my last stop at the mall I noticed a globule of blood on my leg. It certainly isn't mine (I'm male so it's not stray period blood and I don't have any cuts on the lower half of my body). On top of that it didn't look too healthy for blood and I think it had been spat or snorted onto me. I was careful, swabbed the area with alcohol, washed my hands etc but I'm still worried. How long does it take for blood transmitted deseases to show up in a blood test?
