I had a massage parlor girl rub her vagina on my nose. She had some menstrual blood on her vagina. Blood did not enter my mouth. It may have entered my nose, but not much.
Is it necessary to get a HIV test?

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for you HIV/AIDS related health information.

It sounds like you are concerned about your risk of HIV transmission after having menstrual blood rubbed on your nose.

The situation that you have described is a No Risk situation. Here are some of the reasons why:


* HIV needs a human host to survive. Once HIV is outside of the body and exposed to oxygen (outside the vagina and on/in your nose) it can no longer transmit.

* HIV needs direct access to your bloodstream in order to transmit. There was no direct access to your bloodstream.

Here at AIDS Vancouver we encourage everyone to make HIV testing a part of their regular health care maintenance routine. The only way to know your status is to be tested. If you feel that you would like to have an HIV test after reading the information above, you can ask your health care provider for an HIV test.

I would encourage you to check out the following resources about HIV:

  • Risk Assessment Chart


  • Smart Sex Resource


  • HIV Basics


  • Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
