Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission through vaginal fingering and nipple noshing (sucking).

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk (there is no evidence or no documented cases of transmission, however, there is a theoretical possibility of transmission under certain extenuating circumstances).

According to the HIV Transmission Equation (see image below), HIV transmission requires HIV particles in a bodily fluid (e.g. vaginal fluids, blood, semen, etc.) to have direct access to the bloodstream through a High, Low, or Negligible Risk activity.

In both of the scenarios you mentioned, there is not an exchange of bodily fluids, nor an entry point into your bloodstream, that would facilitate HIV transmission. Nipple noshing (sucking) only presents a serious risk for transmission when a new mother living with HIV breastfeeds her infant. With regards to vaginal fingering, there is No Risk for HIV transmission as long as one does not have any cuts/wounds on their fingers, which you mentioned was the case.

Lastly, it is nearly impossible to attribute your fever-like symptoms to HIV. Symptoms of HIV present differently from one person to another and many symptoms of HIV are identical to other illnesses, such as the common cold/flu. One's HIV status cannot be determined without testing confirmation.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a healthcare professional for other health related questions.

All the best,
AIDS Vancouver Online/Helpline,
Shirley
