Its simple if you penetrated her vagina with your penis its unprotected intercourse and its a risk.

You were there I was not, firstly you told me you penetrated her for briefly and now your backtracking into a rubbing against her outer genitals (Not a risk)
Decide for yourself what you did and if it was penetration - test as per guidelines given,   

I thought that those fluids were situated more deeply.

I see where you are going, lets stop this right now.

No need to overthink this one. Your penis is not your mouth and your penis going  inside the confides of the vagina may be subject to fluids including tearing from the vaginal wall hence its a risk. Unprotected intercourse, millions of real world cases.

Your mouth hardly the same as your penis, also saliva is hostile and different exposure to levels of fluids, also the next issue being air etc etc so fast number of barriers and diluted, exposed fluids. On top of that cunnilingus no cases.

Vastly different conditions between the acts and exposure, even-though its the same vagina. 

The short of this is, you put your penis in her vagina = risk = go test.
You were with the woman and only you can tell me if you penetrated her or not.

Thx u Jim, but i have a doubt.

Getting your penis sucked is not a HIV risk, saliva is not infectious, it also contains over a dozen elements that neutralize HIV. Let me put it this way after nearly 40 years in terms of BJ's there hasnít been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked") and you will not be the first.

Cunnilingus. Well see the fluid a woman produces when sexually excited comes from the Bartholin's glands, this is a lubricating fluid and does not have any more hiv present than other bodily secretions such as saliva, sweat or tears.

Saliva, sweat and tears are not infectious fluids.  Simple Cunnilingus lacks the requirements for HIV transmission.

Also any fluids exposed outside the human body regardless of type are not a concern as HIV is only transmitted inside the human body, once exposed outside the human body HIV is no longer infectious. You mouth also lacks without damage the cells to infect and saliva is hostile towards HIV leaving it unable to infect you.

The only oral that is a near negligible risk, as in so small we do not even recommend testing is giving a BJ to a man. You did not even have that no real world risk from the above two activities

Then i introduced only my glans for almost 3 seconds in her vagina, i only introduce my glans, because i didnít have a good erection. So, the penetration was superficial (itís what i think).

Unprotected intercourse with your penis, no matter how brief is a risk. It meets all the conditions needed for transmission, its within the confides of the human body and lacks barriers so despite being a somewhat low risk given its vaginal and you are the insertive partner, it remains a risk and so you should test.

Test 6 weeks and again at 13 weeks post this unprotected intercourse using an antibodies test and also test for easier to transmit STI's whilst you are at it.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as Ďsafeí in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all 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.

rash, sore throat, muscle pains, joint pains, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, white tongue, etc.

Nothing to do with HIV regardless of your HIV status so see your doctor and treat whatever is making you sick

Kind regards

100% in your case over this incident as HIV simply is not transmitted this way.
You might as well be testing because you felt the wind blow whilst walking down the road.

If you ever have an exposure or had an exposure you are neglecting to mention here for some reason test at 6 weeks and at 13 weeks post exposure for a conclusive result

Hello, two months ago i made a cunninlingus to an unknown girl and she made me a blowjob. Then i introduced only my glans for almost 3 seconds in her vagina, i only introduce my glans, because i didnít have a good erection. So, the penetration was superficial (itís what i think). I felt her fluids in my penis. So iím really scared.
I read in this site that the fluids that contain hiv are in the cervix, and the fluids of the  bartholin's glands doesnt transmit the virus, sincerely I do not know with which fluids  I could get in contact. and I do not know my risk of infection.

I felt a lot of symptoms, rash, sore throat, muscle pains, joint pains, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, white tongue, etc.  I know that stress and anxiety can cause it.

Thx u people!
