Hi doctor,

I had been to a massage parlor. I fingered the lady, touched my penis with the same hand, she too touched my penis (I did not cum). Also, I sucked her breasts. Am I at risk of HIV?

Hi doctor,

Thank you for your reply. Can I be 100 % sure or is there a small risk? Should I get tested? If yes, when is it ideal and what test should I go for?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Your risk is unwarranted in this case. It is actually non-existent. However, I always suggest my all sexually active patients to know their baseline HIV status and to allay the anxiety. For this, a rapid HIV fourth generation HIV test can be done at any accredited laboratory. This test can be taken after 4 to 6 weeks of potential exposure. Just to mention, HIV rapid test is also available free of cost at designated centers in the civil hospital of the city.

Hi madam, thank you for the response. If ELISA turns out to be negative at the end of 12 weeks, can I take it as conclusive without further tests?

# Hi Gaurav!

Welcome back!

Yes, it is conclusive. If there is no further exposure other than that, you don't require any more test for HIV screening.

Best wishes!
