Risk of getting infected from masturbation.

Resolved Question:

Dear Doctor

I had a sensual massage in London one week ago. In the end the lady gave me a masturbation (handjob) with massage oil.

I didn't really know if she has cuts on her hand. But I think at least there's no bleeding wound cause she has been massaging my body for about half an hour.No sex, No kisses & No Hugs. She did not remove her underwear as well.

Am I under risk ? and does this encounter worth a test? if yes when can I check?

Maybe I have exaggerated in my situation because I'm scared and terrified of the infection. However, I am married and I want you to reassure me.

Thank you

Thanks for trusting
I understand your concern.

However from mere massaging without any acts of kissing, can't spread STDs. So you can be rest assured nothing like that will happen.

STDs are normally spread through direct intercourse, oral sex ( oral herpes for example ) or by contact between cuts through mucosa while the genitalias are in contact. So from your elaboration, you're safe. Also remember in the future, during any such further episodes, wash your genitalia immediately with soap and that automatically reduces your chances of getting infections.

In this case though, you're safe.

Thank you Dr for your prompt reply. I mean HIV infection !

Thanks for getting back to us. I think i made it clear that there's no risk of any STDS which includes HIV. I apologise if i wasn't clear previously. The ways through which you have a risk of acquiring HIV are :- 1) Sexual intercourse without protection 2) By receiving contaminated blood products. 3) By using IV drugs ( Contaminated needles ) 4) By using infected razors So i can reassure you, that you shouldn't be worried about HIV. In the future though be more careful, so that you don't have to go through this unnecessary anxiety. Do post again for additional queries, Regards

Patient replied :

Last Question What I understood from you, there is no risk witha masturbation (handjob) with regard to the HIV So, I do not need any test right ? Thank you Dr.

Thanks for choosing

No there is no way HIV can be spread through masturbation or hand job. So you can stop worrying about it and relax. I understand you went through a lot of anxiety. However apart from the methods i mentioned there is no other way of getting HIV infection. You don't need any tests.
