gonna get straight to the point I rubbed a guys anus and possibly insterted my finger but thats it! I didnt finger in there! I just put it in there and then took it out Then I masturbated right after!! Whats my risk?? Kinda freaking out...should I get a test? Thanks doctor really appreciate it...

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You are fine! Fingering does not pose a risk of HIV transmission. There needs to be a prolonged exposure. Your finger would have to have an open wound and he would have to have blood present and then there would need to be prolonged contact or exposure. Fingering just doesn't allow that to happen in the situation you have described.

No reason to freak out!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
