I am Stress, need your help

Mar 31, 2013

Last week, I was having some oral sex with a girl and I put my finger to her vaginal. For your information 2 hours before having that oral sex I was cut my finger nails. If that girls having HIV positive, it is possible for me to get infection.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi We know that oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission and fingering carries a low risk as well. I'm not sure what you mean by cut your fingernails. If you had a significant cut on your fingers this could pose a small risk of transmission, but again very small.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Scared. Please help
