Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

If hand is healthy, chances of HIV transmission through handjob are negligible.

If he was not suffering with ulcers on his hand, chance of transmission of other STD is also negligible.

Thus if you have not allowed him oral sex, you should not worry.

To remove anxiety, you should get HIV tested after 3 months.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask.

With good wishes,

Hello Doctor,

Still in confusion. I am male and the Handjob was done by a female.

1) Is it Negligible to get HIV by handjob means , can we practically get HIV by Handjob ?
2) What are my chances ?
3) I know HIV will be transmitted by blood or intercourse , but is it also gets by a Handjob?
4) If so what precautions I need to take not to infect them with HIV as I am not sure at the moment if I am infected or not ?
5) When can i be aware of symptoms of HIV or STD after Handjob ?

I know may be my anxiety is running me like this but scared at the moment for a mistake I did yesterday ( It is my first time and Last time as well :-) )

Hi,

Welcome again,

Answers to your queries is as following:-

(i) As HIV is not transmitted through hands, negligible chance means almost nil.

(ii) If it was only handjob, your chance of getting HIV infection is nil.

(iii) If hands are in healthy condition (no ulcers), no transmission through handjob.

(iv) Precautions are required during sex.

(v) There is no symptom of HIV. It is name of virus.

Aids may take 2 to 20 years (average 8 yrs.) after infection with HIV.

In your case, there should be no transmission. Thus you should not worry.
Just to remove all doubts, you should get HIV tested after 3 months.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask. If you don't require further clarification, can accept the answer and rate it.
