Brief Answer: HIV not through urine. HBV possible. Have Vaccine Detailed Answer: Hello, HIV does not spread through urine. Urine don’t contain enough HIV to infect you, unless they have blood mixed in them and you have significant and direct contact with them. There is likely possibility of Hepatitis B spread through urine. But it needs the direct contact with blood and also urine must contain enough viruses. My advice is have hepatitis B vaccination to prevent Hepatitis B infection in future. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.
