Thank You in Advance in Answering this question .....

I made out (kissing) with a Girl...... I was kissing her all over .... She had panties on ..... I kissed her in between her legs ... close to the Vagina ... Plus I may have kissed her on top of the Vagina over her panties .... But I know I didn't spread the Vaginal Lips and kiss her and I know I didn't insert my tongue anywhere inside the Vagina ...... I looked at the Website and cannot find this answer .... Am I at Risk for HIV ..... if I kissed the top of her Vagina over her panties and maybe part of her Vagina might have been showing as the panties may have moved around a little bit ....... Another note is I have chapped lips ......

Thank You,,,
Very Worried .....

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

I understand that you're worried about this situation. So hopefully my answer helps to ease your worries!

To start, kissing is a No Risk activity. This includes kissing anywhere on the body, since there wouldn't be any exchange of bodily fluids (other than saliva, and saliva doesn't transmit HIV). If you kissed her vagina over her panties, this is also no risk, because no exchange of bodily fluids occurred, same with if they slid around a bit, if you're just on the surface of the skin, where no bodily fluids originate, then there is No Risk.

The risk is introduced when you are actually giving oral sex, which is a Low Risk activity, because now there is an exchange of bodily fluids. However, in your case, this didn't occur, so there was no risk, and therefore no need for testing or anything.

Here is a transmission equation which may be helpful to you:


HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection

I hope this helped! Please refer to our website or avert.org for more reliable HIV information.

Sincerely,

Christina
