Brief Answer: Negligible chance of HIV Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX With your description in the query, there is negligible chance of getting HIV. HIV is transmitted by sexual intercourse (anal, vagina and oral), masturbation (if there is broken skin), sharing needles and via blood transfusion. Thus if you think that you may have contracted HIV it is worthwhile that you get yourself tested by getting ELISA test done. Next course of management will be decided after getting the reports of ELISA. Hope it helps. Dr Vaishalee
