Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV from receiving hand job (Non insertive masturbation). From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk. Transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario.
(No exchange of bodily fluids)

In order to contract HIV the following conditions must be met:
There must be HIV present in a bodily fluid. The five bodily fluids that carry the HIV virus include: blood, semen (including pre-ejaculate), vaginal fluids, breast milk, and rectal secretions.
The bodily fluid containing HIV must have direct access to the bloodstream. This can be through cuts, tears, rips, mucous membranes, open sores, or needles.
Transmission occurs through a risky activity in which the first two conditions are met. For example: condom less sex, sharing needles, unsafe tattoos or piercings, vertical transmission–from mother to child (in utero, during delivery, breastfeeding).

The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the transmission equation because HIV is not present in the bodily fluid (unknown status), there was no direct access to the bloodstream and no involvement of a high risk activity. Even if the HIV status was known there would still be a no risk as there was no direct access to the bloodstream.

HIV is NOT transmitted through: Sharing linens, towels or clothing. Also, HIV drying out on a surface causes a 90-99% concentration depletion over several hours. Quote from the CDC states: "HIV does not survive long outside the human body (such as on surfaces), and it can not reproduce outside a human host."

The symptoms that you are experiencing could be due to other viral infections or causes. Because HIV symptoms mirror other viral infection ( flu etc) or can be due or explained by other things, testing is really the only way to know.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.

Regards,
AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, (Vardah)
