Hello doctors here. my story that I met a girl in the street which her statue known , she let me fingering her for almost 2 mints , then I felt the burning sensation in my finger due to her gential  fluid which I discovered later it’s a s mall cutt like 2 cm with no blood only a cut. Then after that I went and slept with my wife , after  5 days she got diarreah , sore throat and fever . I’m a bit worried about this exposure and thinking a lot . 
Is it possible that I have catch virus by fingering with a cut ? 
Shall I go for HIV test and other STD ?

Welcome back to the forum. Thanks for your continuing confidence in our services.

That said, I don't quite understand why you felt the need. You had three threads with Dr. Hook a few months ago, about similarly low risk exposures. The main point of his several replies is that HIV and other STDs are only transmitted by intercourse. If a bare penis (i.e. no condom) doesn't enter another person's vagina, rectum or mouth, there is no STD risk and that's always our advice on this forum. HIV and STDs are not transmitted by fingering, even in the presence of cuts of the fingers etc. You are not at risk and do not need testing on account of this event. Anticipating a follow-up question (because it was on your mind a few months ago), it is safe to continue sex with your wife.

I hope these comments are helpful. Let me know if anything isn't clear.
