Am I at risk after fingering and sex with positive girl with condom

Greetings gents

First, thanks for the good works this forum is doing on pragmatic Hiv education and prevention

I did some miscellaneous acts and just wanted to know if I need testing for it. I hooked up with a girl (who later told me she’s  positive after the fact).  Here are the acts.


1. Fingered for sometime. Three weeks ago, my finger was trapped in a car door, no external bleeding that time but the finger nail still have  some disappearing blood stain from internal bleeding.

2. Used same finger to insert condom on my penis ( but I tried not to touch the side of condom contacting my penis with the finger, may have touched accidentally)

3. Realized condom was inserted inside out. I. E, it rolled in the wrong way. I didn’t bother bringing it out to put it the other way. I just made sure it is still inserted, though was not as easy  as when it’s put the correct direction.


4. Had sex with the condom. No breakage or slippage till the end.

5. Removed condom at the end, did water test( no leakage) and discarded.

A) Did I go wrong anywhere, am I at risk and do I need testing.

B)  If the condom does not burst or pull during sex, are there any other HIV transmission risks of putting it inside out.

B) do I need PEP for this?


Thanks a lot.

This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk therefore  testing is irrelevant to your situation because you had zero risk. HIV is a fragile virus, which is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.  
Only 3 adult risks are the following:
1. unprotected penetrating vaginal with a penis
2. unprotected penetrating anal sex with a penis
3. sharing needles that you inject with.
The only way to get HIV is if you did one of the 3. The situation you describe is a long way from any of these 3.
Even with blood, lactation, cuts, rashes, burns, etc the air or the saliva does not allow inactivated virus to infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. Doctors have calculated the risk from what you describe to be less than that of being hit by a meteor, therefore no one will get HIV from what you did in the next 40 years of your life either. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established, so no detail that you can add to your encounter will change it from zero risk.
If a condom fails it is a large rip down the seam and it hangs in tatters and both of you would be asking each other lots of questions, so obviously that didn't happen and there is no need for close inspections or messy water tests. You can't get HIV when you used a condom.
