You are worrying unnecesarily. There was no risk for HIV in any of the activities you are reporting.

Sexually the only confirmed risks for the transmicion of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as condoms are used consistently for those activities you will be well protected even if you are with someone who is HIV positive.

It really is that simple. There is no need for testing nor for further concern on your part about this recent incident.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug abusers
Mother to child

The area of the vagina where HIV can be found is high up in the cervix and not where you would likely be fingering which is the labial area.

Only an infant is vulnerable to the breast fluids of an HIV+ woman because the infant's own immune system doesn't kick in until approximately 6 months. An adult is not at risk from the breast milk of an HIV+ woman. 

You are worrying needlessly. Get on with your life.

Wrong! As you were already advised you never had an exposure and you were given the situations of how HIV is transmitted.

How much simpler and clearer can we say it? The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

That's it. Really. You are worrying needlessly and there is really nothing more we can say about this concern of yours except that it is totally unfounded in terms of any real risk for HIV.

thanks for your great advise.But actually other government sites and few forums are saying that fingering vagina is risky for HIV transmission only if there is break or deep cut in finger...but you are saying that in the real world this kind of transmission never takes place..but this does not necessarily means that this cant happen..can you kindly clarify it....So if i go for a test then you are sure that it will be negative ?thanks

If you continue surfing the web I can assure you that you will find material to feed your worst fears. And all to no good purpose.

Theoretically anything other than sex with your own hand is potentially a risk. But in the real world of HIV we know that confirmed risk is about unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

If you can't accept that then get tested at 3 months and collect the inevitable negative result. At this point there's nothing more for us to say about your incident.

No and you wouldn't be fingering anyone with a gaping cut on your finger either.

We're not going to indulge you in taking your speculative what ifs seriously. You did not have a risk for HIV.

If you return with more of this kind of stuff you are going to find yourself getting a Time Out for 28 days. Consider yourself warned. HIV is not your problem. Period.

■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.

Aside from any other issues, sex workers don't use lambskin condoms because they are more expensive. They use latex.

You're working yourself up into another what if frenzy. We're not going there with you. You used a condom for intercourse which is exactly what you are supposed to do everytime.

HIV is not your problem and it won't be as long as you always use condoms.

If you come back again with more of this what if stuff you will definitely get a 28 day Time Out. Consider yourself warned.

Ghar,

Not only are lambskin condoms very expensive, but they are also very difficult to find. I've never once seen them for sale in a shop - the only place I've seen them available is on the internet. So stop worrying about lambskin condoms. If you feel you can't trust the condoms provided by other people, I suggest you buy and use your own.

Please click on and read the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use them correctly and with confidence.

Your time out warning stands. You have NOT had a risk for hiv infection.
