Hep C/IV infection through fingering
Aug 11, 2006

Hello Dr. and thank you for your time. I have searched for an answer to my question and have yet to find one. What are the chances of catching Hep C or HIV from someone inserting their fingers into your vagina. This is the only thing that occured between us. We were together for about 2 hours prior to this happening and I know that he did not cut his fingers during this time but I am worried about possible cuts that may have occured earlier that day. I did not see any blood on his hands at anytime while we were together and we had been holding hands. My thought is that if there was blood on his fingers it would have been noticed prior to him fingering me.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not be concerned about this exposure at all.
