Hi there,

Thank you for choosing AIDS Vancouver for your source of HIV/AIDS related information. It's great to see that you are taking initiative when it comes to your health and well being!

Vaginal fingering is a negligible risk for HIV transmission, meaning that no one has ever acquired the virus from this particular act. Non-insertive masturbation poses no risk. Based on the information you have provided, you do not have HIV and you do not require HIV testing. Feel free to take a look at this chart regarding HIV transmission: http://www.aidsvancouver.org/get-informed/faq/what-hiv-transmission-equation

There are no clinically defined symptoms of HIV. The fact that you have been experiencing sore throats, rashes, itching, fatigue, and numbness are by no means an indication that you have been exposed to the virus. In fact, considering that you are not even at risk for HIV, it's clear that there is no connection between your symptoms and HIV.

At AIDS Vancouver we encourage all sexually active individuals to test for all sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV, as part of a healthy lifestyle. This can be in the form of testing every 3 months, bi-annually, annually or whatever suits that individual's lifestyle.

I hope I have addressed all of your concerns, and if you have any other questions please feel free to contact us again!

All the best,

Greg
