under no circumstances is fingering a risk for infection, not even with a cut on your finger. HIV must be transmitted INSIDE the body, as it can only infect a few very specific cells, and is a very fragile virus.

Now I understand that HIV is transmitted inside the body.My question is this:Since my finger which had a cut was inside her vaginal,does that still impose any risk of transmittion,since transmittion can only occure inside the body.Thank you for your  previous response.

No one has ever been documented with having acquired HIV through non-invasive methods such as fingering. The notion of cuts ont he finger has been mentioned on this site literally thousands of times.

There is absolutely NO WAY to get HIV through fingering, no matter how many spins a person puts on the story.

Notwithstanding the fact that you are EXTREMELY unlikely to contact infectious fluids using your finger (the fluids used for lubrication are NO infectious, it is only the thicker cervical fluids which contain viable virus) your finger provides immediate and effective barriers against pathogens, including HIV from the moment it is cut. From blood pressure to pH balance to platelets, this is NOT a manner in which HIV can gain entrance to the body.

HIV infects only a few different types of cells. None of these are located near the derma, with the exception of cells specific to the inside of an uncircumsized penis.

You have had absolutely NO risk for HIV infection.

Please wear a condom for penetrative vaginal and anal sex, and you will avoid HIV altogether. It really is that simple.

Kissing is absolutely not a risk for hiv infection, not even when your tongue gets bitten. Not only is saliva not infectious, but it also contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST SPECIFICALLY OVER A KISS, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

I'm most grateful on how fast u respond to people's issues and worries about HIV.pls pardon me if I'm still not posting on my own thread,I'm using a mobile phone amd it does not allow me see the column for my own post. Here goes my question; what if there was bleeding from my bitten tongue and she has a bleeding gum,does is it mean the HIV in the blood will not survive inside her saliver which could then go through my bitten tongue? I have been so worried,please clear this out for me.Thanks.
