Question: 

 
hi Doctor
can you please advice on the below; i have on 13 April met a Commercial Sex Worker, me and my friend took her to my friends place;
i fingered her vagina(inserted my 2 fingers into her vagina fully). licked and sucked and slowly bit her breasts; i did not have intercourse with her, then my friend wend and had sex
with her; later after 30 minutes or so, i again went pressed her boobs sucked her boobs(don't remember exactly as i was drunk by then) HIV status of the girl is unknown
my questions
1> can i get HIV by fingering vagina
2> is it possible if after fingering when i was sucking her breast the viginal fluid on my finger may have gone into my mouth from her breast, is that risky,
3> later when the 2nd time after my
friend turn was over(approx 30 minutes after my friend was done) when i then sucked her breast is it possible that my friends sperm or semen may have remained on her
body( though she wore her clothes back and i had to strip her before my second time) and could be a risk, as my friend HIV status is also unknown.
4> all through the process i was
wearing my pants but not any shirt or t-shirt,(that is only bare body) please advice on my risk for getting
HIV infected; its almost 5 week + now; last 2 weeks i had few pimple coming on my face and forearms; they are now gone;
should i get HIV tested, am i at risk. i am very  very tensed from that day,  suffering from anxiety.  my weight has reduced by 1.5 kg from that day.
Please help. Please review the scenario and the questions I hv posted thoroughly. Please tell me if I have a risk. Should I get HIV tested or not required.

Answer: 

Hi, please note that we are not doctors. We at the AIDS Vancouver Helpline do recommend that all sexually active people regularly test for all Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), including HIV.
A Commercial Sex Worker is no more likely to have HIV than anyone else. Fingering is considered negligible in the transmission of HIV as is taking breast milk in one's mouth. This means that this could happen as there does present a potential of transmission because there does involve an exchange of body fluids however there has not been a confirmed report of HIV transmission from either of these sexual acts.
The situation you remember from the evening in which you were drunk is not a risk for the transmission of the HIV virus. Sexual activities that pass HIV are unprotected vaginal intercourse and unprotected anal intercourse. The activities you were engaged in are a no, low or negligible risk. Contact with sexual fluids does put you at risk for other sexually transmitted infections, such as syphilis.
HIV is also passed when people inject with shared needles, and can be passed from mother to child. The only way to ease your suffering and anxiety is to seek a test for all STI' including HIV. Having pimples is in no way an indication of any illness.
Please continue to educate yourself about sexual health and safety. I will include a helpful link to further assist you. www.smartsexresource.com
Good luck and keep well.
