Dear Doctors and everybody,

I have mutual masturbated with one guy i know via dating app. We did not do any oral or anal sex. We just masturbated together by hand. I did first for him but he did not ejaculate, just a small amout of precum on my hand. I cleaned it up with shirt. He also touch his penis 2 or 3 times for 10s. After that, I and him have kissed together and he touched my body and my coat and my t shirt to take them off. He touched my p*nis through my shorts for few seconds and touched my penis by his hand. I get a lot of paranoid and worry about if his precum was still on his hand and he touched my penis to masturbate me, will i get risk of hiv infection?. IHealso touched top of my penis for few second. HEam afraid some precum on his hand contacted my open of penis. I think not much precum on his hand because he touched my clothes before touching my penis and the time from he touched his penis to my penis was about 3 to 5 mins. Will i get infected from him? Because i got a lot of anxiety, i also used PEP at 37 hours after this even. Will i be safe?

Thank you. Sorry for long question.

Hello,


Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission from a hand job.  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).

From the HIV transmission equation, HIV transmission requires a fluid containing HIV particles (such as semen, pre-cum or blood) to have direct access to the bloodstream through an activity with little exposure to oxygen. In this case your scenario is Negligible Risk because the activity that you engaged in would have exposed the pre-cum to oxygen. HIV requires a very specific environment, it does not survive long outside of the body, and cannot replicate outside of the human host (1). When HIV is exposed to oxygen it undergoes a rapid reduction in concentration (90-99% within a couple of hours) (2). The small amount of pre-cum that was present on your partners hand would have been exposed to oxygen, causing the concentration of any HIV present to quickly deplete. This would render it inactive, and makes the theoretical risk of transmission very low in this scenario.
Helpline Transmission Equation .jpgPEP is a good approach for preventing HIV post-exposure. You accessed it within 72 hours, if you continue to adhere to the PEP medication schedule and take the entire 28-day course it will be most effective.

Recommendation: Continue taking PEP, refer to a health care provider for HIV testing when deemed appropriate and for other health related questions.
