HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

Risk Assessment - Vaginal Fluids into mouth

(1/2) > >>

On Sep 22, 2012 me and some friends went to Vegas and I got dragged into a strip club.

While we were in the strip club, I got separated from my friends and 2 of the strippers started dancing on me and started to kiss me on my cheeks and neck like crazy. Eventually they started putting their fingers deeply into my mouth MULTIPLE TIMES. I really regret letting them do that, I was a little bit buzzed from alcohol and wasn't thinking straight. I tried to get them to stop.

Eventually the strippers told me that they put her finger in her vagina and then into my mouth a few seconds later.  I rinsed my mouth with later moments later.

1. What is my chances/risk of getting infected with HIV if I had bad gums, like if I floss or brush my teeth, it could possibly bleed? During the event, they were not bleeding.
2. I felt an oncoming sore throat/inflamed throat coming along, would that increase my risk?
3. If I was not at risk for STD, what other stds should I be concerned about?
4. If those strippers did finger themselves and applied vaginal secretions to my mouth multiple times, could that increase my risk?
5. Off topic but what about gonorrhea and herpes hsv2?

Other notes: I had dental work 1 year ago, had wisdom teeth removed. 22 years old. Male, Virgin.

1-2 weeks later, my entire body started to itch. Lots of acne under chin. Some in public area. I felt tired, Diarrhea for the next 3 months. Upset stomach - felt like throwing up.
3rd weeks -6th week muscle aches/joint pains, weird rash on the neck and some on back. Constant soreness/pain on neck and underarm. Occasionally on groin.
Dry eye/pink eye, canker sores in mouth.

8-9 weeks later (started nov 15 - next week) low grade fever 99.9F, felt like vomiting, lost of appetite. Primary care dr said I had sinus infection during this time.
10th + weeks - headaches everyday/or feels like headache, sore throat on and off, cough.

At NO TIME were you at any risk for HIV infection.

HIV is transmitted INSIDE the body, and the fluids in a female's genitalia which are infectious are located far too deep for fingers to reach.

Moreover, the time it takes for a finger to exit a vagina and enter your mouth is more than sufficient time for viral particles to become inert.

Sorry you are feeling unwell, but there is absolutely no risk whatsoever in the incident as you describe it.


1. None.

2. Nope.

3. Not a single one from a finger in your mouth.

4. Nope.

5. Forget gonorrhea in this situation. You could have gotten herpes from kissing if one of them had a developing, active or healing herpes outbreak on her lips - but not from fluids on their fingers. Herpes 1 and herpes 2 are basically the same animal and can infect either the lips/mouth or genitals (including the anal area) or both.

You haven't had a risk for hiv infection.

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 FOR HIV OVER THIS FINGER-IN-MOUTH SITUATION, 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. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

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


jkinatl2 - Thank you jkinatl2, I am glad to hear that. :)

Ann - Thank you for the extremely detailed response and answering of all the questions I had. You and jkinatl2 have been really helpful!
I am quite relieved that I was never at risk. As for question number 5: I have HSV1 from when I was a child, when you say I could have had herpes, did you mean potential hsv2 infection? If I were to be extra safe, would I go test for herpes?

Thanks again! You both rock!


As you already have herpes, you do not need to test for herpes. As I said to you earlier, herpes 1 and 2 are basically the same thing. You're not going to get herpes on your dick from being kissed on the mouth.

(You can get herpes1 or 2 on your dick from being sucked by someone who has an emerging, active, or healing herpes1 or 2 outbreak on their lip.) You didn't get your dick sucked, so stop worrying about it.

It's time you put this NO RISK incident behind you and got on with your life. Seriously.
