There was no oral or vaginal sex. What are the chances of my contracting HIV?

Brief Answer:
The chances are very unlikely.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome to HCM.

French kissing and fingering with women of known negative status are no risk activities for HIV. Even though the women was positive than also the risk is very unlikely or remote so don't get worried. For any further query feel free to ask me any time.

Welcome back and thanks for follow-up.

As such no testing is required as the risk is very unlikely but if these thoughts are disturbing you then it is better to get tested to relieve your anxiety and to clear all your doubts. For any further help you can contact me any time.
