low risk?

May 30, 2012

Hello, what is the actual risk of licking my finger pretty much right after fingering a stripper. I've tested w/multiple hiv tests (rapids and elisa) well past one year (all neg) but had weird symptoms at 6 weeks afterwards and continue to have web type eye floaters. Please let me know your thoughts and thanks so much

Response from Ms. Southall

HI The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you. You have clearly tested within these guidelines and are fine. The risk of HIV transmission in your situation was very very small. Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
