Dear Andy and Ann
Here is my story,  last week i met with a lady in an hotel, she is a call girl, we did not have an intercourse she just gave ma a bj and i was having a condum, i played her clit and rubbed her organ externaly, i did not enter my finger inside so after we finished i rememberd that the finger i used for rubbing had a small skin cut at the top corner of the nail the cut was about 4 to 5 hours old, it was not bleeding that time, knowing that while rubbing i felt some fluids on my fingers, so am i at risk of getting something.
I am so worried as i live in the middle east and it is very dificult to have a test here cos if it is positive they will send you out of the country as i am a foreigner.

As the only documented method for heterosexual HIV transmission from female to male is unprotected vaginal sex, you absolutely did not have a risk.

You were told earlier that fingering, even with cuts, is no risk for HIV. That assessment has not changed.

I've separated your entry from the thread which you posted it in which belongs to another member. Our rule here is that you write only in your own thread unless you are authorized to respond to members. Please use this thread should you want to write again in the future.

Nothing you did put you at risk for HIV. As JK has told you, the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as you consistently use condoms for those activities you will be effectively protected.

Fingering including with nicks on your fingers is absolutely not a risk for HIV. You don't have to test nor is there any cause for further concern this time.

 Dear Andy an Jk,
Thank you a lot for your replay and sorry if i posted on someone else but i am new to this site and not familiar with rules.
I have one more question to clarify, the cut i had i think it is called a hangnail, were skin was removed it bleeded for a while and then stopped and after 3 to 4 hours i only rubbed the vagaina and clit externally no insertion of fingers, but while rubbing i felt some of her fluids on my fingers and maybe on the damaged area of the hangnail.
I would go and test but here in this country if your positive hiv u will be sent out to ur home country, so this senario is a non risk too?

No you didn't have a risk even if you had a hangnail, abrastion or cut.

 Dear
I had a cut and ithink it is called a hangnail, were skin was removed it bleeded for a while and then stopped and after 3 to 4 hours i only rubbed a sex worker vagaina and clit externally no insertion of fingers, but while rubbing i felt some of her fluids on my fingers and maybe on the damaged area of the hangnail. Note that she will never allow u to penetrate her without a condom even she do not allow french kissing and finger insertion to her vagaina.

Still no risk. Trust me, if there were ANY caveats to "fingering" as a risk, it would be not labeled "No risk."

You have not had a risk through fingering.

Thank you all for your replays, i am filling better now, i do trust you and your site and forgive me for this one more question, why this act ( fingering with hangnail) for some sites is not risky and for some others it is knowing that these sites ( both types) had answers from doctors so isn't it confusing?

It's not, for people that are educated in HIV transmission.

ander,

You have not had a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected through fingering and you are not going to be the first.

By the way, you sent me a Private Message. If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

Do NOT use Private Messages to question other members about any transmission, testing or symptom issues. These issues must be discussed in the public forum. Misuse of the PM function in this manner will result in your PM privileges being removed without warning.


I have removed your PM privilege. Make sure you READ and abide by all the other rules listed in the Welcome Thread I linked you to above. You have already violated two of those rules and if you violate another, I will have no choice but to give you a Time Out or ban you altogether. Please consider yourself warned!

Ann

Dear all,

I managed to get tested by a rapid test through a hospital,  the test was about 8 weeks after that finguring issue i asked about before, the results were negative. So your answers and the negative rapid test togather means i am safe right!
I do appreciate your support for me during my stressed period.

You do not, can not get HIV through fingering, You never needed to test. This was not an HIV issue in any way.
