Possible hiv infection by getting fingered with semen on finger

Hi,
the story goes like that. I had a sexual meeting with a previously unknown man, he came on my body, he touched me and after a few minutes he fingered me.
Some people reassured me that there is no risk at all at this situation but I want another opinion!
I would really appreciate a quick reply!
Thanks a lot.

Welcome to the Forum. My answer is the same as the answer you just received on the HIV Prevention community site- this was a no risk exposure.  Mutual masturbation does not put you at risk for HIV, even if your partner's genital secretions get on you. this includes, "fingering".  The HIV virus does not live well outside of the body and is not transferred to cause infection on a person's fingers. There is no indication for testing related to the exposure you report and no need for testing.  

Hope this comment helps. EWH

I don't know if I expressed myself correctly but the "fingering" was received by me with the semen on the other's hand (I am stating that coz I didn't really understand if you got my question but this is what i meant "fingering" )

Dear dr.,
Everything you said is very helpful, my question is not anxious-driven though, I didn't understand 100% your exlanation. What confuses me is this :
Mutual masturbation does not put you at risk for HIV, even if your partner's genital secretions get on you. this includes, "fingering"
My fear isn't about possibility caused on my body or fingers but if I could be threatened from the insertion In me with semen on fingers. I hope that I am not causing any problems with my question but I'd really appreciate it if you could make it more clear, as I don't have a perfect understanding till now.
Thanks a lot and I am really sorry for my repetitive question but I don't have clear in my mind.

Hi.I have read your interaction with Dr Hook and would like to reassure you that you had no risk at all whatsoever as Dr Hook told you.Take some time and read through the threads for April and May on fingerig for this year and you will see you had No Risk.Also look up my post and you will get further reassurance.Trust Dr Hook and move on.If you had had a risk he would have told you so.

Take care.
