Indirect Vaginal Fluid Contact Through a Cut


Two days ago i had an protected vaginal and unprotected oral sex (i received) with a CSW. After we finished she realized a big cut between my leg and testicle which is not easy to see regarding it's location. I have no idea where i had it from. Might be because of the shaving i had 1 day before or maybe because of her nails since it was a little hard sex. But the cut / wound was looking fresh, little blood and and up to this day did not healed fast still looking a little fresh. Maybe it is the active part when i walk or not getting enouh air or something else.

My question if this cut/vound contacted wirh her vaginal fluids somehow, what is my risk of getting hiv?

Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (body, fluids, etc. ). You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal with a penis, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are ONLY 3 ways to get hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the WORST that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. The advice took into consideration that the other person might be positive, so move on and enjoy life instead of thinking about this non-event. hiv prevention is straightforward since there are only 3 ways you can become infected, so next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself this QUESTION. "Did I do any of the 3?" Then after you say "No, I didn't" you will know that it's time to move on back to your happy life.
No one got hiv from what you did during 40 years of hiv history and no one will get it in the next 40 years of your life either.  You can do what you did any time and be safe from hiv.
The other person's status is irrelevant when you have no exposure to live virus.
It is irrelevant how close it was to the area where dead virus was smeared on it.

Nope, you are not at risk for HIV from what you describe.  Only ways someone gets HIV are to have unprotected vaginal or anal sex or to share IV drug needles to inject drugs.  Sex with condom, oral sex . . . cut on leg and all . . . are NOT risks.  Air and saliva inactivate the virus.  There is no risk at all from your activity.

Hello GuitarRox. Thank you for your comment. If it was on my leg i wouldn't care but its closed to area where vaginal fluids can reach. As i said it is not an ordinary small cut. A nice big deep wound.  Still you think the same way?
