Can you get HIV from strapon inserted in anus with possible blood drops on the surface? I met a woman on Tinder for pegging experience but she looked shady. It appeared to me that she might be into drugs and could be HIV positive. Anyways, when I went to her place, I had new strapon, dildo, condom and lube. She put Strapon on with the dildo and I put a brand new condom on it. However, she used her hand to put lube all over. 15 seconds later, she tried to insert it in me.. She couldn't get past 1 inch and finally got it inside. But then I stopped her as I felt uncomfortable. I left the place soon after. I am worried because I used the toy on me with condom a few hours before and am scared that I might have scratched my mucous membrane with it. Secondly, I feel that there was a cut on her hand and there could be little blood spread on the surface while spreading lube before insertion. What are my chances of getting HIV? It happened 4 weeks back, I am feeling weakness, feeling tired since, have headaches at time. I dont have fever or flu like symptoms but do have malaise.

Hi

It’s possible that HIV could pass this way as you may be putting someone else’s blood into your anus. It’s difficult to know the exact risk as HIV does not survive well when it is outside of the body.

It is always hard to recall what exactly happened or what someone saw after the fact, but given that your feeling unwell and worried about this I think it would be good to go for a HIV test 6 weeks after this event  happened .

Currently in BC Canada we use the 4th gen (antigen and antibody) HIV test, we find that most people would show a positive result by 6 weeks after HIV was passed to them, but sometimes it can take up to 90 days so it’s a good idea to do a final test at 90 days if concerned.

Let us know if you have any more questions, concerns or need assistance finding a place that offers HIV testing.
