User Profile
I am a man, living in the middle east, 2months ago i had oral sex with a Filipna girl, what i did only is closed mouth kissing for maximum 3 seconds, and i wear latex gloves while fingering her , there was no intercourse at all, we didn't do sex.... after few seconds of fingering her i have put my hand on my penis just to cover it and to prevent any intercourse to be happen... there was very small cut on the side of my penis caused before 1 or 2 minutes by my nail, but there was no blood going out from my penis...

what i am afraid if touching my penis with the latex gloves having some remaining vaginal liquid will transmit HIV to me. I dont know whether the lady is +ve or -ve HIV.

Cab you please help me and advise, i am so stressed not able to sleep always reading topics about this issue... i am really confused.

Do i need testing???

Appreciate your earliest reply,

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The description of the sexual act, with kissing or protected fingering does not indicate a high risk for HIV infection in your case. ‎Even though you did touch your penis with the fingers, it is not enough for transmission of HIV in your case.

Since there was no actual exchange of body fluids in proportions that matter for spread of infection, there is no need to be concerned about being infected.

There would be no need to test for HIV, as most likely it would be negative.

But in case, you are anxious and do want to get this episode behind you, you can choose to get tested for HIV antibodies via ELISA test, after 4 weeks after the exposure. This will help to calm your mind and get over your past.
