Tip of penis might have gone inside anus

Question: 

First of all, thank you for this helpful resource of information about HIV.

What happened to me is that this morning I was fooling around with this guy and he started rubbing his penis against my anus. He started pushing it like if he wanted his penis to go inside, I panicked and took his thing away from my anus. This happened several times. I was so dilated that maybe the tip of his penis went into my anus. At first I thought that I would've felt pain if it had certainly gotten in (which I did not feel) but then again I was so dilated I fear the tip went in and I did not notice. Could this happen? Am I at great risk of contracting HIV?

Thank you very much !

Answer: 

Greetings,

Rest assured that rubbing up against each other poses a low risk for HIV transmission. I would definitely recommend that anyone engaging in sexual activity get regular STI/HIV testing done as it pertains to their lifestyle. (Perhaps every 6 months or yearly.) This situation may have put you more at risk for other STI's than it would have for HIV, and for your own piece of mind, perhaps have a blood test done.

I hope this helps put your mind a bit more at ease.

All the best!
