Does doing fisting rectum with a scratch on finger exposing to HIV?
Hi,

Two days ago, I fisted a guy with my right hand. I didn't think too much about to have protection or whatever, so I just put in my bare hand. And he bled, when I pulled out my hand, it was covered with blood and lub. I asked him is he negative, he said yes but who knows, got me concerned.

After we left, I found a scratch on my right thumb joint, with skin peeling off and kind of flesh exposing but only the very outer layer with no pain. It's recovered now though.

So, if he is positive, would I be exposed to HIV and required PEP?
Thank you.

You had no risk from fisting,cuts or scraps would not have placed you at risk because what you engaged in is not a mode of Hiv transmission.

Thanks for reply.
I've got those pieces of information, but the information I read so far also says that the virus goes into the blood stream would get you infected. Doesn't a scratch make an entrance for them to enter? or it's like too small to go into blood stream.
Although I've read another answer by a doctor saying there has no documentation showing fisting with a scratch on finger would get you infected with HIV, but I think I scratched my finger in the receiver's rectum. My hand was intact before it, so the scratch was freshly made.
And one more thing is that the receiver said the last time he has conducted a test was 2.5 months ago.
Does these extra information change anything?

Doesn't change a thing when it's not a risk.
