Response from Dr. McGowan

I am sorry that you are in such distress.

There is no real risk of getting HIV in the manner you described. Even if you had a sore on your genitals it would be far removed from the site of contact (and an old cut is generally closed after 24 hours and woould not put you at risk). Getting an HIV test is always a good idea. I would not recommend an HIV PCR since that test is not indicated for routine testing after an exposure. Since it is still less than 2 weeks since the incident any tests now would mostly reflect your past behaviors rather than this episode. You can repeat the test at 4-6 weeks and 3 months iof you want to be assured, but do not worry, this is not a high risk situation, even if your partner were HIV infected. Best, Joe
