Anal fingering , how risky

Jun 11, 2012

Hi, i possibly had cuts and inserted my fingers in a lady`s vagina and Anus , not sure of her status, how deep would a cut need to be for hiv to get thru the cut and in the blood stream, she was an African female from South Africa, could i contact HIV from her this way....desperate , please help.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi, there:

The cut would need to be deep enough to allow direct access to the bloodstream for transmission to occur. Unless blood was pouring from both her vagina, and your finger, I would not be concerned.

In health,
