Greetings,

Fingering is considered a negligible risk for HIV transmission. This means that regardless of body fluids being present, HIV cannot transmit to you through your hands, regardless of any cuts, new or old, that may have been present.

Take a deep breath! You have not done anything to put yourself at risk .

Keep in mind the transmission equation when moving forward and needing to assess your risk. Three things must be present in order for the possibility of transmission:

i) Body Fluids with High Levels of HIV, specifically blood, semen, rectal and vaginal fluids, pre-cum, breast milk
ii) Activity specific to: unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse, sharing needles, mother to child
iii) Direct Access for the virus to enter the bloodstream specific to: the vagina, anus, urethra, point of needle injection, other mucosal membranes, or fresh, open and actively bleeding wounds.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us again.

All the best,

Katie
