Vaginal Fluid
      #234974 - 01/06/08 02:20 AM

Hello, I'd like to know whether my risk is high/nonexistent/low on a situation I had. I've had a girlfriend for a while and we recently engaged in sexual activity. I've used condoms at all times, but a few weeks ago I did something I regret. After I fingered my girlfriend I proceeded to stick my finger in my mouth a minute afterwards by accident(It's a bad habit I've had, I know), it wasn't like it was teeming with fluid, but I felt some and could taste it. I'm anxious to know what the risk is with this action. Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

There is NO risk from the situation you describe.
Infectious fluid is deeper inside the vagina by the cervix. Furthermore, the virus is fragile outside the body and exposure to air would kill it. Also, saliva deactivates the virus. Even direct cunnilingus is not considered to be a risk. Calm down, you are OK..
