Response from Dr. Frascino
Hello Ex-Pat Living in Dubai,
1. Your initial unprotected vaginal sex (with the Lebanese woman) was by far the riskiest of your activities. Luckily your repeatedly negative HIV tests obtained well beyond the window period confirm that you did not contract HIV from this episode. Your other activities massage, protected sex, blowjob, fingering, etc. are not considered significant HIV risks.
2. Regarding HIV tests, you need to wait at least three months from your last potential exposure for the tests to be considered definitive. In your case of "protected sex," your 2.5-month test would not be considered conclusive. However, since the sex was protected, an HIV test wasn't even warranted, if the latex condom was used properly and did not fail.
3. Fingering is not considered an HIV risk if the skin on your fingers was intact. As for my being in your place, well, let's just say that would never happen!
4. If during your "protected" sex episodes you used properly a latex condom which did not break, and if the skin on your fingers that did the walking through the love canal was intact, then I do not feel additional HIV testing is warranted.
5. The best way I can help you is to remind you to always practice safe sex. That way, you'll never need my help again!
Good luck. Stay well.
