HIV: HIV is contracted through body fluids, so her inserting her finger in your vagina (even if she is actually HIV positive which you do not know) would NOT cause you to get HIV. Best wishes, hope this alleviates your fears.

Unusual: Unusual for a massage. Was she wearing gloves? Were their any open cuts on her finger? It is an unlikely way to contact HIV but if you remain concerned both be tested for HIV and hepatitis. All the best.

Even if you: assume the masuse is HIV positive,your risk is low to nil of contracting HIV from this type of exposure.HIV is contracted by exchange of bodily fluids,not by touching.

Very unlikely: Skin is an effective barrier to HIV. If there was no blood on her fingers and had no open sores or cuts, transmission with hiv would be very low risk. If she has HIV.The other question would be if the insertion of fingers into vagina was slow or forceful enough to cause any trauma. Also was she wearing gloves or not? Or, rather washed her hands between patients? Either one would be a good idea
