Fingering Risk


Fingered a stripper, unknown HIV status.  Had cuts/broken skin on fingers due to eczema.  What is my risk of HIV? When should I get tested.  Also touched her one day old tattoo briefly.

What you posted here isn't an HIV risk to you.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Continue taking PrEP as an additional layer of HIV protection

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get tested regularly and at least yearly for STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and, the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Ok thank you so to confirm no testing is needed for this?

So move on with your life, use condoms for any intercourse and as you are sexually active test at least yearly out of routine for HIV and easier to acquire STI's.
