HIV risk exposure?

I recently had a sexual encounter with an escort. This escort had a bandaid on her arm with blood on it. We did not have oral or vaginal sex. She used her breasts to make me ejaculate. The bandaid on the arm has me extremely nervous. Again there was no penetration orally or vaginally or anally. I am extremely nervous and wondering what the risk factor would be if she was positive and her arm or bandaid touched my arm or leg etc. I am affraid she was a drug user. Should i get an RNA year so I know early and can put this behind me or move forward.

You had the same risk as anyone else who touches a bandaid or someone's cuts when they shake hands. Zero, otherwise we would all have it because everyone gets cuts and touches other people's at one time or another and probably a few times every year. HIV is effectively dead in air so can't infect, so it is time to move on from HIV and back to your normal life.

Thank you for your response. The band aid had fresh blood. But I understand now from your statement. I will try to put this mistake behind me.

Whatever she was, a drug user or an HIV +ve. It has nothing to do with HIV transmission during the situation you described. HIV is transmitted only through unprotected anal and/or vaginal sex when we talk about the sexual routes of transmission. Your risk never existed.

People mix their flowing blood in collisions in sports, etc all the time and they aren't even wearing a band aid. To get it in deep enough for transmission to occur would require a huge gaping wound so deep that you wouldn't be having sex.
