I recently gave another man a hand job. I did not know him and his status. My question is; He ejaculated on the outside of my hand. After, I noticed I had 2 small dry cuts, which look like paper cuts/scrape from approximately 2 to 5 days before (or even could be the day before but not likely). The 2 cut/scrape are very small.
Is their any way I could have gotten infected with HIV if his sperm touched my cut which was a few days old. He ejaculated a lot and Im scared that some sperm could have touched my cut. I can scratch the cut with my nail and their is no bleeding. Im thinking this is a dry cut and the semen would not be able to get in.
Is their a chance I could have contracted HIV?
Please advise as I never did something like this before and now I am worried.
Cuts and nicks on the hands are extremely common. Therefore, If you think about it, you will understand that over the 25 years of the known HIV/AIDS epidemic, there must have been millions of exposures just like yours -- and yet there has never been a known case (or even a suspected case) of someone catching HIV by hand job. You aren't likely to be the first -- even if your partner's semen came in contact with the cut. If the cut were deep and brand new (i.e. less than a few minutes old and actively bleeding) and if the semen were massaged into the wound, there might be some risk. But there is no risk in the situation you describe and you do not need testing.
I hope this helps. Take care and stay safe (as this exposure was).
Doctor, sorry to bother you but can you answer one more question for me. As you can tell I am bothered by what I did.
Regarding the nik and cut that I have on my hand- If the semen did get onto the cuts, and they were a day old would their be a chance of me contracting the virus then? Or is it still irrelevant? Like I said their was no visible blood, just what looks like a scab starting to form on the small ripped skin. The scab was not fully developed so I am still nervous that the semen could have gotten into my blood stream. Can you tell me the difference between a cut that does not hold a risk and a cut that does hold a risk of gettin HIV?
Thank you for your time. This is my last post. Please respond.
