Genital Hand Genital contact

Hi there,
I was fingering a girl I met at the pub. We did the act for ten minutes. However, briefly after that I used the restroom. Obviously there was a contact from within my hand and genital.Could the vaginal secretions from her pass through my hand to my genital?
All this happened in the span of 15 minutes and it’s making me anxious.

Hello. There is no risk at all..

Planned Parenthood: " You can spread herpes to other parts of your body if you touch a herpes sore and then touch your mouth, genitals, or eyes without washing your hands first. "

Yes, Geminiii is correct. You can't get herpes from touching others with your hands and then touching yourself. Herpes isn't spread by vaginal secretions - or any body fluids for that matter - but by skin to skin contact, and it needs some friction.

You can spread it to other parts of your own body if you have it, and this is called autoinocculation. It usually happens before you have antibodies (your body's response to a germ) and if you touch a sore and then touch another area that has mucous membranes, you can spread the infection to that area.

Here are some posts from our experts (when we had them) that may help -
