I am very concerned that i caught an STI that way. I am concerned because it was international airport where a lot of people use it. Thank you so much, me and my girlfriend are worried that i got something.
Hi, thanks for your question. We do not see people getting STI's from toilets, by sitting on them or through contact with the water in the toilet bowl. STI's are sexually transmitted infections usually through genital skin contact with wet warm sexual fluids. Of course there are other bacteria that can be transmitted through contact with any toilet surface that many people have used. (... Read Full Answer
