How is HIV transmitted?
Fluids mixing outside the body has negligible risk
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.
When you and the massage parlor girl were on your inner wears ,where is the possibility of HIV? There is only a negligible risk for HIV by contacting the wet wears with fingers. Exchange of body fluids happen inside one's body has the risk. Outside mixing of wetness has almost no risk. HIV can not be viable outside the body and not able to be transmitted by clothes and inanimate objects. You don't need to have any HIV test. But it is better for you to for a test to see a negative test which will alleviate your mental tension. Nothing to worry.
I am in UAE here testing becomes difficult
RAPID TEST AFTER 12 WEEKS rules out HIV1&2
You need not worry much. Your test is suggested just to see a negative test. It is better to wait for 12 weeks after your high risk activity, so that you can take up any ordinary rapid HIV test which can rule out both HIV 1&2. Earlier tests can rule out only HIV 1 alone.
Nothing will happen during waiting.
Antibodytest after 12 weeks rules out both HIV 1&2
No early test is necessary as your risk is very negligible. Earlier tests (Antigen based) done after 4 weeks can rule out HIV 1 infection, which is the commonest throughout the world.The possibility of HIV 2 can only be ruled out with antibody based test done after 12 weeks of window period to have a conclusive result.
