You're wasting your money getting tested. You didn't have any risk for HIV transmission. No matter what spin you put on it with various details, fingering is absolutely not a risk for HIV.

As for oral, no one has ever been confirmed to have been infected from getting oral. Period. And giving oral is risky in theory, but in the real world of HIV it just doesn't happen. Claims of having been infected in that manner never seem to hold up under careful scrutiny. Your saliva contains over a dozen elements and proteins which are very effective in preventing the transmission of viable HIV.

Of course, common sense dictates that if you have a fresh, gaping wound in your mouth or extremely poor oral care, that is not the time to give oral.

Otherwise I don't see any need for testing. We do suggest that anyone who's sexually active ought to have a full STD panel done at least once a year. Other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV.
