Hello doctor,

I always have low WBC since childhood. I had a blow job, and inserted my finger in her vagina, and I am afraid because I might have rubbed my eyes after that. Am I at risk for HIV?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The chance of transmission of HIV by blow job is almost nil unless, there are bleeding wounds in both the partners, in the area of contact. It is very unlikely. So there is almost a nil chance.

The transmission of HIV by finger insertion is also nil. Skin is an effective barrier. HIV does not survive in the environment or on hands for long. So the chances of transmission of HIV through eyes is very very minimal or nil. So the risk is almost nil. If she is negative there is no risk at all. You can get her tested. You can also get tested by antibodies test after three months of exposure. Else do an HIV RNA PCR test after 10 days of exposure.
