Hi. I need to know whether it is possible to transmit HIV by fingering a girl. Could it happen if a bit of saliva was used? There was no oral sex.

Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions. We're happy to help!

Fingering is considered to be a negligible risk activity, meaning that while it is theoretically possible to acquire HIV in this scenario, there has never been a confirmed report. The AIDS Vancouver Risk Assessment Chart has great information regarding the risk level associated with different activities, in case you had any further questions: [Risk Assessment Chart](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart).

Furthermore, saliva actually contains an enzyme that inhibits the transmission of HIV!

I hope I have answered your questions, and feel free to contact us with any further concerns.

Regards,

Sierra, Helpline Volunteer
