Answer: 

Hi there, thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver helpline with your HIV related questions/concerns. We're happy to help!

I'm sorry to hear that you're concerned over this situation, but great job on taking the initiative to go and get tested in the first exposure! Just to ease your mind a little bit, any negative result is a great sign, as most people develop detectable antibodies in just 21-25 days! Additionally, you can do the test a little bit sooner than april 20th if you want, since HIV tests are conclusive at 12 weeks post exposure (84 days), we say three months to be simpler, but if you're concerned, your test would be conclusive on April 13th, which is exactly 12 weeks from January 20th!

To answer your questions:

1) Handjobs are considered to be ** No Risk** since they're non-penetrative masturbation, with no exchange of bodily fluids. Further, getting bodily fluids on your hand is still No Risk since HIV needs direct access to the blood stream and intact skin doesn't provide that. Even broken skin doesn't typically provide that, unless it's a large and open wound, such as one that needs immediate medical attention such as stitches.

2) No, your window period remains the same since handjobs are no risk!

I hope this helped to address your questions. Please visit this website for more information about how HIV is typically transmitted: http://www.avert.org/hiv-transmission-prevention/how-you-get-hiv
