Can I get HIV using my FINGERS?
Apr 19, 2003

Hi I've asked this question before but no one has replied back yet I'm sure you guys are very busy with lots and lots of questions. Anyways I wanted to know how much risk is it to get HIV by pentetrating a womans vagina with my fingers? Please Let me know ASAP?!?! Thank you guys so much for this website.

Response from Dr. Jackson

I am not aware of any documented case of an HIV transmission from vaginal exposure with a finger. Theoretically such a transmission is possible if the woman is HIV infected and if there are any cuts or abraisions on the finger.


help, help, help
