Fingering with cut
Kantotsupa posted:
Hi all...

I had fingered the vagina of a sex worker for 1 minute ... Then I noticed that I had a half inch cut wound on the base of my finger (not the tip).

My cut is not bleeding by then,,,, am I of great risk for HIV?

georgiagail responded:
No (even assuming this sex worker is HIV positive). Your cut is not an open portal into your body.

Kantotsupa replied to georgiagail's response:
Thanks... Is your comment the same even my cut was bleeding or fresh cut...? Because I cant remember if my cut was fresh then when I fingered her.

How much vaginal fluid would enough to infect an open wound?

Sorry for follow up questions...

A bleeding wound would be an open portal into your body.

It's not the vaginal fluid that would infect someone but rather the virus that would be contained in the sexual fluids of an infected individual that could.
