Blood Problem?
May 28, 2001

A girl bled on my finger?(From her Vagina) Is there a chance of getting HIV/AIDS....PLease HELP

Response from Mr. Kull

There is a chance that you could be infected any time you come into contact with fluids that potentially carry HIV. Assessing your risk for infection requires an examination of several factors, like: 1)What is the HIV status of your partner, 2) What kind of activity were you engaging in with your partner, and 3) What are the odds of infection through that type of behavior based on both the mechanics of infection and the evidence (epidemiology). Inserting your finger in a person's vagina carries a very low risk for infection. Your skin provides an excellent barrier against HIV's access to your bloodstream AND there is no evidence that anyone has ever been infected this way. Your risk for infection is very low.

Please read through "Frequently Asked Questions about Safer Sex and Prevention" (http://www.thebody.com/sowadsky/message2.html) for more information on your question.
