Mutual masturbation risk, small amount of vaginal fluid touching penis

Hey guys, please can someone help me, I had a mutual masturbation session with a female, a stripper. It basically involved me fingering her while masturbating myself. I used my left to play with her and my right for myself. During the session it was like this the whole time apart from a brief two seconds when I used the same hand I was using on myself to finger her, I then went back to masturbating my self with the same had. My question is in this brief 1-2 seconds of fingering then going back to masturbating, am I at risk? I understand it’s not a hiv risk, but am I at risk for anything else? This happened a week ago, no symptoms but I’m currently dating someone and don’t want to infect her. Maybe I’m being overly cautious but please help.

STDs rarely spread by masturbating. here is a risk of gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis and herpes because of the contact between her vaginal fluid and your urethra. Herpes and syphilis can be also transmitted by contact skin to skin. I would recommend you to test as follows:

-3 weeks after the encounter, for gonorrhea, chlamydia.
-6 weeks after the encounter for syphilis.
-3 months after the encounter, for herpes.

Oh really? I thought that hand genital contact was basically risk free from what I’d read. Is there any reason you have given me different advice to what you have this guy even though our situation is pretty much exactly the same? If anything mine is less, I touched her vagina for all of 1-2 seconds then continued masturbatinf myself with the same hand. Not doubting you, just confused

There was a guy who had rubbed his shaft agains a vagina and anus. But, when he posted his issue here, a community leader in the group has commented, the risk is zero.
And,
"Assuming she has every STD in the world - mutual masturbation is still no risk. I'm including some links that will help explain why."

After reading that and actually understanding how STDs are spread and gained, I feel confident enough to continue sex with my partner. I was over thinking things, thanks to everyone that helped. Learned a lot from that post!

You are welcome. But, to be careful, you can do the tests mentioned by the community leader DragonPulse. So, you can be certain and you will not have any doubts after 1 or 2 years from this exposure.
Thanks, il test every 6 months or so anyway, I think paranoia just got the better of me, thinking back the hand I masturbated myself with literally rubbed her for a split second, I’ve now read a good 10 plus posts of similar incidents and am satisfied I’m not at risk, again thanks guys
Aww you're quoting my posts. That's awesome. :)

You're right - there is no risk from mutual masturbation. If you are sexually active, though, testing regularly - 6 months or a year, depending on how active you are, and what you are doing - is a good idea always.

In case you need some more confirmation:

Here are some posts from our experts (when we had them) that may help -
