Thanks for your query.

Vaginal fluid containing virus or bacteria can be transmitted.if penis is traumatized or have tears or if vigorous masturbation is done. No doubt chances are less as compared to full fledged intercourse.

So the chances are less in your case, but possibility can`t be ruled out.
