Fingering With Dirty Hands

My exboyfriend lived near a hospital and once, we met up there (he was sitting on the waiting bench) before we went to his flat. He started fingering me and it was only later that I realized he hadn't washed his hands. Its over five months later now, I've been ill twice in the meantime, but nothing serious (it only lasted a couple of days each time). I feel fine, its just that I'm terrified that he infected me with something and it hasn't shown up yet. Is that possible/worth worrying about? Is there anything I should do?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Sometimes you can get a vaginal infections when the bacteria is off balanced. This can happen can when a non-sterile foreign object comes in contact with your vagina such as a tampon or someone else fingering you. Symptoms of an infection include itching and/or burning sensations, and/or painful intercourse. If you wish, you should see a gynecologist to get a pap smear. They will be able to detect any abnormalities that way.

Thank you very much for replying. my doctor tested me for stds and I had an hiv test done, the only thing that came back was that I have bacterial vaginosis. Do you think I should get any other tests done? I felt itching and burning for a while afterwards, but by now everything feels fine. Does that mean that any possible infections went away and I need not be worried any more?
