Massage parlor

Hello Drs,

First of all I am aware about the 2 top most situation for HIV transmission ( an unprotected anal-vaginal sex or Sharing IV)

5 days ago I went to massage parlor where I received Handjob and I sucked her nipple for about 20 seconds
from that I have sleepless nights and excessive worry of getting HIV

I didn't have any sex or any oral sex

My mind is telling me what if massage therapist has a hidden IV needle and she intentionally put that in me without my knowledge. what if she made a cut inside my buttocks (so I can't see)  and drawn his blood and put  it into me.

I know I am describing some stupid situation but being an hypochondriac this is all I am thinking constantly from the day of incident.

From above described scenario does it make sense? how much risk is there to being HIV positive?  What's your thoughts?

- A really worried gentleman

Actually, THESE are the only risks for someone getting HIV. HIV is transmitted from having unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles. That's it.  Since you did not do any of these three risks, you are in no danger of getting HIV. Air and saliva inactivate the virus. You do not even need to test from your encounter. The imagining of an IV needle is truly the work of an anxious mind. That didn't happen. And a needle poke will not transmit the virus.  And you weren't poked by a needle. There is treatment for anxiety!
