fingered with freshly cut nailsi
« on: July 03, 2010, 04:54:48 AM »
I have another sn for this site from before. I bought a new computer lost all my info. Sorry but I'm not trying to break the rules.
Tonight I got fingered by a guy I'm a guy. He told he was going to clip his nail because it was long. He did. He applied lube to the finger and 30 seconds later fingered my butt. I saw no blood or cut. Am I at risk letting him finger me after clipping his nail? I didn't think till after a minute or two. Told him to stop again checked his finger even squuezed it to see if blood came out but no blood. Maybe microscopic blood was there idk. Do I need PEP?

Old,

Nails don't bleed, fingering is not a risk and you certainly do NOT need PEP. If you've been a member here before, you should know this stuff.

I guess what I was asking is if he cut himself when cliiping his nail am I at risk. I'm thinking he did it on purpose to infect me.

You're being paranoid. Get a grip.

You're right. I even squeezed his finger after to see if he had cut himself. No blood that I noticed. I'm very paranoid I guess. Would it have to be a good sized cut under his nail in order to infect me?

Old,

Yeah, he would have had to have half his finger missing after just having it cut off.

Get. A. Grip.

I noticed that he had a hangnail with dry blood in his middle finger. Is this still no risk? The fingering only lasted about 2 minutes. The hangnail was small but it had dry blood. Well, at least it looked dry. Is testing required at 12 or 13 weeks.

Old,

You do not need testing over this NO RISK incident. Hiv is not transmittable from dried blood.

Couldn't the hangnail re-open or something when the finger was inside of me?

Old,

Look mate, you can obsess  over this NO RISK incident all you want, but you can't do it here.

If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.


Please consider yourself warned!

I read your lesson on transmission. Fingering is no risk for the guy doing the fingering. I'm the guy who got fingered. Hangnail with blood albeit dry blood went in my rectum. Couldn't the trauma inside my rectum open it again?

Old,

Fingering isn't a risk for hiv infection no matter if you're fingering or being fingered. If you insist on using this website to fret about your NO RISK sexual antics, you WILL be given a time out.

PLEASE CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED FOR THE LAST TIME!!!!

People get infected during sex when blood is exchanged. Couldn't the hangnail bleed once inside of me? It was a hangnail with blood. Looked dry but not totally. Would it have be a bigger amount of blood? I'm guessing I'm anxious about it but I do have legit worries. I should have gotten PEP now that I think about it.

While I am keeping in mind that you're upset as I read your entries, when you throw in regrets about not having had PEP over the incident, then I really have to say ENOUGH!

You have absolutely no cause for concern about sexual transmission of HIV from this incident. There's never been a confirmed case of transmission through fingering of any sort. It's safe to say you aren't going to make history by becoming the first.

If you can't let go of worrying about this non-risk then I suggest you consult with a counselor or other professional to deal with your fears.

In the meantime I am going to give you that Time Out for 28 days which Ann warned you about. You do not have an HIV risk problem. Give it up and get on with your life.

Also, don't make the mistake of trying to get around the Time Out by creating a new name here. We'll spot that right off and it will get you permanently banned from the site.

Now stop all this unnecessary drama and get on with your life.
