plase help
« on: November 04, 2007, 04:29:31 PM »
Please help really scare of getting HIV. My situation is really bad, I was with a friend in the street and we meet two girls. They invite us to their hotel room.  We were there playing with the girls. I was fingering one girl like for 7 or 10 minutes her vagina and then I stop because, she had a really bad smell, and maybe she had an infection or something, right after that, I went and wash my hands with soup. Like two hours later I notes a really small cut in my finger, the cut it was fresh. Another thing that worries me is the girl was touching her vagina and she was grabbing my Back and the back of my neck, I have a lot of acne and sometimes they are very fresh or some are bedding. After all this happen I went back home with my friend and I do not took a shower until the next morning. What really worries me is if I had a small bedding open wound in the back of my Neck or in my Back. Do I need to get an HIV test in 3 months?

Fingering is not a risk for HIV transmission and you don't need to test as a result of this sexual encounter.

Please follow the links to our Lessons contained in our Welcome Thread to learn more about how HIV is and is not transmitted.

Nothing you have reported about this incident put you at risk for HIV transmission.

It's good that you asked the question though because it signals that you don't know the basics about HIV transmission. This epidemic is going to be around for a long time to come and no one can afford to be unknowing about the real risks. As Matty suggested, read our lesson about transmission. Essentially in terms of sexual activity the risk is through unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse. As long as you consistently use latex condom for those then you will be well protected against sexual transmission.

This time you have no cause for concern nor for HIV testing.

Thank you for answering my questions.  So there is not risk even if some of her   Vagina Fluid was on the skin with a fresh cut. I worry about this, because I really have pimples and sometimes some of them are bedding because of accidents. I do not really worry about my finger because the cut was heal up, but I worry because of this. I are you guys are sure there is not risk, please be Honest.

We've told you the real deal. You absolutely were not at risk for HIV transmission.

Get on with your life.
