touching sanitary pad (urgent)

hi there,
i have couple of questions that bothering my mind. here is my case:

yesterday night i went to massage parlour, i got hand job at the end by female theurapist with no condom. she wore a dress while i grabbed her boobs and underwear. she is on her period hence she was using a menstrual period.

1. can i infected by receive hand job with no condom?
2. i am afraid her menstrual blood goes through/seeping the pad and my finger touch the blood (no wound on my finger as i remember), can i get infected by this scenario
3. do i need PEP?

thank you

Jose

This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk and your tests were a waste of time.
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. Knowing these 3 are all you need to know to protect yourself against HIV. 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.
thanks for your response.

so, you are saying that im not at risk of being infected?

do i need PeP?
Reread about 3, long way and detail.
anxious, please do not angry at me.

im just want hear you saying the conclusion to calm my mind ; so am i not risk of being infected hence i dont need PeP?
Which of the only 3 do you feel was your risk?
Anxious,

In CDC website they are saying about the risk of blood exposure, what im really worried is that her menstrual blood seep and my dry finger touch it. is that really  no risk from that?
you've been given all the information you need, you did not have a risk, move on from this event.

You had no risk for ANY disease. See a doctor if you can't understand.
