Can you get HIV from fingering yourself? Maybe you had blood or bloodily fluids in your fingernails and can you get HIV after washing your hands?

Whose blood?: Your own blood or fluid on your finger or another person's??? If it is your own there is no risk. If it is some other person's, then it is a concern. Is the other person infected? Washing off the blood or other materiel is very important but not 100% guarantee against infection. This is a strange question. Do you have contact with an hiv-positive person.? ...Read more

Can you get HIV from tribbing (vagina rubbing) with a girl who might be at Risk of HIV? Or fingering?

Can you get HIV from tribbing (vagina rubbing) with a girl who might be at Risk of HIV? Or fingering?

Just The Facts Ma'am: The virus must get through a body defense like skin or mucous membranes (like the vagina). The best defense is an intact skin or mucus membrane. It can enter through a cut or abrasion (like a finger scraping the wall of the vagina, if the finger is coated with fresh virus usually obtained from vaginal or penile secretions). The relative risks are varied, but the above are the basic facts. ...Read more

STI: Besides sexually transmitted diseases, there are other non-medical things you need to be worried about. My recommendation is you find a good women and marry her. Forget the prostitutes. They are a recipe for disaster. If you haven't had any problems up to now, you are lucky. It's just a matter of time, your luck will run out. ...Read more

Can fingering yourself lead to HIV? I didn't have any contact with a HIV+ person or there bloodily fluids. Could you answer in very convincing way :)

What would convince?: Forgive my frankness. This has been asked and answered. Your question is like asking whether you can get pregnant without contact with a man or with semen. If someone has told you that enjoying your body like any other adult is dangerous or unclean, that person isn't your real friend. If you cannot be rid of these obsessive thoughts, your physician can recommend ways for you to find help. ...Read more

I know fingering yourself doesn't lead to HIV, but my brain goes what if, could you tell my why fingering doesn't lead to HIV, no contact with HIV+?

I know fingering yourself doesn't lead to HIV, but my brain goes what if, could you tell my why fingering doesn't lead to HIV, no contact with HIV+?

Basic biology: HIV is a microbe, an organism that is found nowhere on your own body. It's an invader. Every one of the viruses comes from a pre-existing virus going back to a chimp in the Congo in the early 1900's. It can only live in other living folks or their fresh secretions. You don't worry "what if" touch yourself causes pregnancy, I hope. Tell your mind to stop laying tricks on you. ...Read more

I was with 2 girls from kenya. They did protrcted oral sex for me. I did kissing fingering and docking unprotected for them. No penetration. Any hiv risk?

This is safe: You will not get HIV though there is a small risk of gonorrhea. But please think about this. These women are probably trafficked from abject poverty in East Africa and exploited cruelly in Riyadh. Wouldn't you feel better about yourself as a man if you sought and shared real love where there is true mutual affection? You deserve better yourself. ...Read more

Can a woman transmit HIV to an other woman by masturbating and then fingering her using the same hand?

Highly unlikely: But, theoretically, possible, especially if the woman climaxed and there were increased secretions which may have been exchanged. This is very low risk sexual activity, but if you want to be entirely safe, avoid the exchange of semen, blood or vaginal secretions. Stay well:) ...Read more

Deep kissing, brest sucking and fingering with a girl of unknow HIV status, no oral or vaginal sex can it spread Hiv, I had tongue sores also that time?

Hard answer, Yes: If you do everything to get HIV, it can only be a matter of time. My advice: Stop playing Russian roulette and start practicing safe sex for a change. But first, you need to get tested for STDs, including HIV in 2-3 wks and then 4-6 wks after the incident. ...Read more

Girl put her fingering into my mouth wit vag fluids on them. Hiv risk? Neg oraquick at 4 months and she tested neg at 3 months using oraquick. Safe?

Most likely safe: As the girl oraquick test is negative at two occasion at 3 and 4 months after the incidence, she is safe. There is much less chance now for the test to become positive in future. To be on safe side she can get blood test for H.I.V antibodies now and after 6 months. ...Read more
