blue line on nail

Question: 

**** is blue line on nail mucous membrane cause i just finger in vagina is there any risk of hiv

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about noticing a blue mark on nail after inserting a finger in the vagina (fingering) and whether or not there is a risk for HIV acquisition. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Negligible Risk There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. However, there is a theoretical possibility.

The following scenario satisfies only one component of the transmission equation as vaginal fluids can carry HIV, but the virus would have to enter your blood stream in order for you to become infected. In the above scenario there is no direct access to the bloodstream nor there is a high risk activity therefore it is considered to be negligible risk.

Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission refer to Physician for more personalized answers.
