Hi,

About 5 and a half weeks ago I had a massage with a handjob and I also rimmed her for about 5 seconds.
Is it possible to get HIV from this?

I have done a rapid combo test at 3 and a half weeks, a ag/ab blood test at 4 weeks, a rapid combo test at 4 and a half weeks and another rapid combo test at 5 weeks.

Is it likely for these results to change if i do a blood test at 6 weeks? Would you even recommend testing for the exposure of rimming and a hand job?

Thanks

Hi there,
thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver helpline with your HIV related questions and concerns. We're happy to help!

I will start off first with the risk levels of those activites:

1) receiving a handjob is a No Risk activity

2) Rimming is considered to be a Negligible Risk activity, which means that even though you could technically make a case for it, there hasn't been a single reported case of transmission in this way.

So overall, your risk level wouldn't have even warranted testing in the first place, and you have had several negative tests in a row. Although tests are not conclusive until 12 weeks, they are about 95% accurate between 4-6 weeks, and therefore your results are unlikely to change. It is up to you whether or not you'd like to get a test at 12 weeks, but since your risk level was only negligible, and you've already had multiple negative tests, it's not likely to be necessary for you.

I hope this helped! Please visit avert.org for more reliable HIV information about transmission and testing.

Sincerely,

Christina
