Hi and thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. Any small, superficial cuts on your hands do not provide a chance for HIV to pass to you. If any vaginal fluid may have touched your mouth, and you are not sure it did, and if that fluid contained the virus, your saliva was protective against transmission.

You did not mention whether or not you had unprotected vaginal intercourse. It is not the amount of time that you took during intercourse but whether or not you used a condom that will determine the risk. If you did not use a condom and do not know the HIV status of your sexual partner, then I suggest that you consider HIV testing at 84 days after the exposure in order to know if you have acquired HIV. If you used a condom for intercourse and it did not break, then you do not need testing. In future, if you are sexually active it is generally a good idea to protect yourself and your sexual partners by using a condom. You may also wish to consider a routine of regular testing for HIV and other STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections).

I hope this answers your questions. Please contact the Helpline in the future if you have other HIV related concerns.

Best wishes,

Marnelle
