Penetrating her vagina with fingers - any risk of HIV?

Dec 31, 2013

Hello, is it possible to get HIV from a possibly HIV positive girl which I was fingering and penetrating her vagina continuously with my fingers for about 5 minutes? I don't remember I would have any bleeding hole in my fingers. Maybe some dry skin or a little bit of eczema.

I know that there were many questions like that but I could not find any about penetrating a girl with fingers.

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Response from Mr. Glenn

There are actually many many questions/answers here about fingering.

The short answer is that there's no risk of HIV from that.

Your fingers would have had to been VERY cut up and bloody.

Hope this helps,
