Hi recently I have visited massage parlour and I was fully clothes and the girl was completely naked,I shucked her nipple and touched her vagina with my fingers. I had a 5 cm sized wound on lower lips which was bleeding fresh 48 hrs before this incident. After this I used a wet issue to wipe off my hands. May be 2-3 mins after I wiped off my hands. I touched my lip wound which is not freshly bleeding. Is there a chance of me turning HIV positive. Does this incident need testing at all. Prior to this incident I have tested for HIV and all negative

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission from touching a recent wound on your lips after nipple noshing (sucking) and vaginal fingering.

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

With regards to your risk assessment, according to the HIV Transmission Equation (see image below), HIV transmission requires bodily fluid containing HIV particles from another individual (in this case vaginal fluid) to have direct access to your bloodstream through a High/Low/Negligible Risk activity. Theoretically, there is a possibility of HIV transmission in this scenario, due to the fact that there is a means to your bloodstream (cut on your lip) and possible bodily fluid present (i.e., vaginal fluid). However, because this activity was not direct per se and did not occur in a closed environment (i.e., the fluid went on your fingers before going on your lip), this minimizes the possibility from HIV transmission occurring. In addition, you did not have an actively bleeding lip, which further reduces the possibility of transmission happening.

Lastly, nipple noshing (sucking) only presents a serious risk for transmission when a new mother living with HIV breastfeeds her infant. This would not provide a further risk of HIV transmission.

Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. Refer to a healthcare professional for more personalized answers.
