a young couple in bed having problems and crisis

Would I be at risk of HIV if some fingered me and his finger was covered with semen? I’m worried and anxious. Thank you so much.

    Did the semen that touched your anus come from a man infected with HIV or uninfected? If it came from an uninfected man, then it would contain no HIV and you would have no risk of HIV infection. However, if it came from a man infected with HIV, then yes, you would have a small risk of contracting HIV.

    I hasten to add that HIV is not all that easy to contract. The semen would have to be contaminated with virus. AND it would have to come in contact with not just your skin, but your BLOOD. If you had no cuts on your anus and no bleeding hemorrhoids, there would be no way for the virus to move into your bloodstream. And even if there was some semen-blood contact, there’s a low risk of infection from a single exposure.

    If you’re still anxious, see a doctor, get evaluated, and if the doctor wants to test you, get tested.
