I have been anxious after the incident that took place 1 week ago. I went to a Thai massage parlor. It first started with a back massage (15 mins), and later on, the masseuse started massaging my anus (2 mins). She then turned me over and then started massaging my penis.

I am not aware if she had any cuts/sores on her finger. To what was visible, I didn't see anything but can't say.
I did notice when she talked to me that she got severe Gum inflammation
My questions –
1. Am I at any risk from the Handjob with possible cuts/sores on fingers during the process? HIV?
2. Am I at any risk from Anal fingering with possible cuts/sores on fingers
3. I’m afraid that the during the hand job blood from her mouth(I did not receive blowjob) got in my urethra due to her Gum Inflammation
Thank you very much for your help

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline.

The risk of acquiring HIV associated with receiving a handjob is considered to be negligible. This means that there have been no reported cases of someone acquiring HIV in this way in British Columbia.

If your partner had blood or sores on her hands this would not increase your risk of acquiring HIV. This is because when HIV in bodily fluids (such as blood) is exposed to the air it becomes non-transmissible. Any blood that may have been on her hands would have been exposed to the air and would not contain transmissible HIV.

For more information about HIV you can visit CATIE.ca or the AIDS Vancouver website.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions.
