You were not at risk of contracting HIV from this encounter.

Your penis coming into contact with her vulva or the outside of her vagina is not a risk for HIV transmission. Nor is fingering a woman.

You do not need to be tested for HIV as a result of this encounter. Please read our Welcome Thread and follow the links to our lessons on HIV transmission.

I don't know about commenting on your whole life after this event.

I do know that if you want to protect yourself from the sexual transmission for HIV the solution is very simple: use a condom everytime you have vaginal or anal intercourse. No exceptions. Then you will be well protected.

You can tell your doctor if you like, though I would imagine he or she would give you the same advice I have.

Just wait for about six moth and get tested.  If you negative that is fine and that means you are safe.   ;D

Metekrop, you are not authorized to be commenting or responding in this section of the Forums. Please don't do it again.

Not only that but what you have told Alone is wrong. Testing at 6 months is only for a certain few circurmstances and his situation is not one of those. In fact he was never at risk and doesn't even need to get tested.

Yah, you have a lot of worrying company. Fortunately fears are not facts and you have no basis in factual HIV science to be concerned.

Get tested if you must for your peace of mind. Based on what you have reported a negative result is a slam dunk.
