Very Nervous - Beyond Belief
« on: March 14, 2015, 12:11:53 pm »
Hello All - I am nervous beyond belief because I'm with a woman I love. At a strip club during a dance, a stripper sucked my finger (very briefly because I didn't like it). She also licked my ear and I didn't like that either.

I legitimately had a tender cuticle and possibly a small cut on that finger. Very likely was cut a bit. Is there a possibility of being inoculated with any form of sti or hep...even HIV?

Our lack of knowledge drives our fear and in this case I am very unknowledgeable and terrified. I will make sure to get tested when I'm back home but I need advice please.

Much appreciated.

I know this is a unique situation because I've googled this and no one has ever asked it. I need some sort of advice. It sounds crazy but I don't know what was going on in her mouth and I legitimately had a small sore/cut on my cuticle. Not an open cut but who knows it was sore and red. I've read about transmission of hep through blood so this is driving my fear majorly.

You should get tested, then you can quit worrying...

Hi Frank,

Your chance of contracting HCV or HIV from what you explained is about zero.

Best wishes, Mike

I appreciate it. It was a serious question and everyone's response put me at ease. I also learned a very important lesson. I'll still get tested as it can't hurt. Everyone's input here on this forum is very important and I appreciate it.
