Hi, recently I had an encounter with a guy, he fingered me very intensely and my anus got quite irritated after a while so we stopped, he used plenty of saliva to do fingering. Then he started grinding his penis against my anus, he had his underwear on and it lasted only few seconds. It's hard to say if there was any pre-cum since he had his underwear on. About five minutes after I have checked with white paper if there was any blood stains but there wasn't so I suppose even if my anus was irritated there was no blood or cuts but can't rule it out? There was no penetration, his penis touched my anus only through underwear for a very short time. Is it any risk of hiv infection?
Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV from fingering (inserting a finger into the anus). From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Negligible Risk fingering does involve a potential for HIV transmission, as there is an exchange of body fluids. However, there has never been a confirmed report of this happening.

In order to contract HIV, the following conditions must be met:
There must be HIV present in a bodily fluid. The five bodily fluids that carry the HIV virus include: blood, semen (including pre-ejaculate), vaginal fluids, breast milk, and rectal secretions.
The bodily fluid containing HIV must have direct access to the bloodstream. This can be through cuts, tears, rips, mucous membranes, open sores, or needles.
Transmission occurs through a risky activity in which the first two conditions are met. For example: condom less sex, sharing needles, unsafe tattoos or piercings, vertical transmission–from mother to child (in utero, during delivery, breastfeeding).

Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission refer to Physician for more personalized answers.

Regards,
