Hi, I have two incidents from the same encounter with a CSW that i'm extremely worried about and need advice on the possible risk. For the first incident, the csw performed protected oral (with condom on penis) after having performed vaginal sex with her for 5-10 minutes. She then proceeded to remove the condom and perform unprotected oral sex on me. The next day I found what looks like an open wound (was not present before the encounter) that you would see if you scratched your skin hard enough to expose a raw red layer. What are the risks of vaginal fluid being transferred to her mouth and infecting the wound through oral sex. The second encounter involves her inserting her finger into her vagina to apply lubricant before sex. She then proceeded to use the same finger and inserted an inch into my anus without any fingering motion. What are the risks of her cutting the inside of my anus and transferring any possible hiv present on her finger to me through the cut. Need urgent advice. Please and thanks.

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 during an encounter. We're happy to answer your question for you.

Here is a summary of the situations you're questioning:

* receiving unprotected oral sex
* protected vaginal sex
* fingering

Receiving unprotected oral sex is considered a negligible risk activity, meaning that while transmissions are theoretically possible, none have been observed to occur through activities such as these. Protected vaginal sex is considered a low risk activity, meaning that transmission is possible only under certain circumstances (like the condom breaking, for example). Fingering is considered a no risk activity (even if she fingered herself and then fingered your anus). HIV does not transmit this way. To see the risk levels associated with various activities, we'd encourage you to check out our [risk assessment](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart) page.

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