fresh paper cut


Hi I gave a hand job to my new boyfriend..after I was washing my hand from his semen I realized I had a deep fresh non bleeding paper cut on my index finger out of no where....what are risks? I don't know when I got this cut but I know it was fresh since it looked red but it wasn't bleeding and also not even painful...please help


Hi there,

Handjobs are considered negligible risk for HIV transmission. While paper cuts can be painful and annoying, you would basically need to have a giant gaping oozing wound (think being stabbed with a giant knife) before it would be a concern.

Take care! Maggie
