Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission in the event that your partner had pricked her finger moments before she put a condom on you. You describe that during this process the pricked finger had made contact with the tip of your penis/urethra.
From the information given, this scenario is determined to be of Negligible Risk (there is no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. However, there is a theoretical possibility of transmission under certain extenuating circumstances).
This scenario is determined to be Negligible due to the fact that there is potential for our HIV Transmission Equation (see diagram below) to be satisfied. In order for transmission to occur, there must be the presence of HIV positive fluid (blood, semen, vaginal fluid, anal fluid, breast milk), with direct access to the bloodstream, through a High, Low, or Negligible Risk activity.
HIV does not survive long outside of the body (1). Dry or drying HIV positive fluid undergoes a rapid reduction in concentration when exposed to environmental surfaces outside of the body (1).
In your scenario, it appears that there may have been a presence of blood. Yet, the amount of blood that is produced by a small finger prick, particularly one made from a rapid test, may not have been too superficial to provide direct access to the bloodstream (ie: from her finger to your urethra).
The reason why this is Negligible is that it is technically possible, yet, highly unlikely.
For Negligible scenarios such as this, we recommend that although there is no evidence or no documented cases of transmission, individuals refer to a healthcare professional for more personalized answers.
All the best,
