I was on a blind date last night and I ended up fingering the girl without any sort of protection(eg like latex gloves) and I have been freaking out that I caught something... is that possible to catch an std from fingering someone??? Please help. Thankyou.

The concern with fingering is more about bacterial infections from unwashed hands, than anything else. And that's only for the one receiving manual sex.

So if the only contact that went on was between your fingers and her vagina, then you do not need to worry about STIs.

Well we attempted to have sex/handjob (for me) both unsuccessfully but I was wearing a condom( the fingering was the only thing we did that was unprotective) does that matter at all?

By sex - do you mean you attempted to have intercourse? If so, you were mostly protected though know that a couple of STIs are skin contact based, so condoms don't protect us from all STIs for intercourse, only most.

It is very rare to contract a STI from fingering a partner, unless as noted above a bacterial infections which you can give to your partner (yeast infections for example).

As long as you used the condom correctly (i.e didn't flip it over after attempting to put it on wrong) then you should be ok.

If your that worried, we can hardly test you over this, just go to you GP and get tested, i get regular STI/STD checks so that i never have to worry. Don't get so paranoid, if anything it will be that she has a bacterial infection from your dirty hands!
