Can STI be contracted through vaginal fluid contact with skin?
Very low tisk, if at all
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I have gone through your query and I have noted down your concern.
If there were no vaginal fluids on her fingers then there is no risk.
However, if she had some vaginal fluids on her fingers and then those fluids came in direct contact with your oral mucosa then that amounts to some risk, not much though, because not a lot of vaginal secretions would have been involved that way. The risk of acquiring an STD's from this activity can be compared to an act of performing direct oral sex on a female, however, the difference here is that not a lot of vaginal fluids would have been involved in this case and therefore less risk. Oral sex anyways carries a low risk out of all forms of sexual activity.
Therefore, even though theoretically vaginal fluids can transmit infections like genital herpes, throat gonorrhea and chlamydia, syphilis and even HIV, the risk through fingers (assuming they were contaminated with vaginal fluids) is not a common route and not considered a high risk for STD's.
The most common route for transmission of an STD is vaginal, anal or oral sex with an infected sexual partner.
Not absolutely required to undergo testing.
Not absolutely necessary but only just as a precaution to take it out of your mind.
Herpes may present with sores
Watch out for any sores in or around your mouth as herpes usually presents with sores. There is really no risk of any other STD.
I would suggest that you take an ELISA for IgG Hsv type 1 and type 2 at 12 weeks along with an antibody based test (e.g SPOT test/ RAPID test) for HIV antibodies at 12 weeks. These should be conclusive.
