Hello everyone,
Thank You for the work you provide here.

Yesterday(10 hours ago) I was at a male strip club. A stripper sat beside me on a table and we started talking.
on my wrist i had some severe allergies, which when i scratch they start bleeding. So while we were talking I was scratching them the whole time, I guess I was nervous. Anyways at some point he had his hand in his underwear, he was playing with his penis,he then grabbed my hand from my wrist, at this point we noticed that my allergies where bleeding and that he had precum(pre-semen) on his fingers. I am so so scared of hiv transmission from that incident...
1) so basically my cuts where exposed to his pre cum(semen).
2) my friend is telling me that I am at risk for hiv because his sperm got in contact with my blood, his sperm got inside my cuts and especially that my blood is coming from wrist area(where all the veins are) that sounds stupid i know. Shall i go to the hospital and explain my situation or what shall i do about it ??
3) we dont know anything about that stripper, all I was able to know is that he did someone gay porn. I dont know his status, I dont know anything about him.
4) I really cant wait 3 months to find out if i am positive or negative from this incident.. I am sooo scared.
Please someone help me out. Is there any Risk of Hiv ? what shall i do at the moment ?

Again thanks for the help you provide here..
Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you're concerned about the possibility of HIV transmitting. We're happy to answer your question for you.

This is a no risk situation. To understand why, know that HIV is a very fragile virus that is rendered intransmissible on exposure to air. Any virus potentially in that fluid would not be able to be transmitted to you. Also consider the transmission equation:

---------- -------- ----------------------------
• 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
You'll see that required for transfer are all of a fluid involved in transfer, an activity involved in transfer, and direct access to the bloodstream. This does not involve an activity involved in transfer, nor does it provide direct access to the bloodstream to any significant extent. The cuts on your hand are small enough that they do not increase the risk of transfer to any significant extent. For these reasons, this is a no risk situation.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has been answered fully.
