"Non-intact" Skin?? Advice Please!
      #96044 - 04/19/04 10:37 PM

I know I'm probably panicking, but I'm concerned about the phrase "non-intact" skin as it relates to exposure to body fluids of a known HIV+ partner. I definitely had some hangnails or small "raw" areas along my cuticles when I anally fingered someone who is HIV+. There was a lot of fluid (mostly lube I guess) but I'm also worried that there could have been blood. Any input as to my risk level? Thanks for your help.

If your finger wasn't dripping blood, then you shouldn't be worried about HIV transmission from what you described.

Life is meant for living, not fearing.
