Please let this go. You are negative, so move on already.
Oral sex is not a risk for infection. HIV is a very fragile virus. Its outer surface becomes damaged, immediately when leaving the host; where changes in temperature, pH and moisture levels, alter the HIV outer surface, rendering it unable to infect. The mouth is another barrier, as it protects us from pathogens that we encounter daily and it contains over a dozen proteins and enzymes that alter the HIV leaving it unable to infect.
There have been no fewer than three separate serodiscordant couples studies (where one person is HIV positive, the other negative.) These couples were tracked for three. five and ten years. The couples used condoms for penetrative vaginal and anal sex, but NO BARRIER at all for oral sex. Any kind of oral sex.
These studies yielded NO infections.
You have not had a risk and you do not need to test over this incident. Nobody has ever become poz from an average BJ and you won't be the first.
Last September I had unprotected oral sex with a young guy from grindr, he didn't cum in my mouth but I'm sure there must have been pre cum in my mouth. My gums usually bleed when I brush my teeth but I didn't brush before this. Another time a month later a guy I met at a club forced my head into his penis, it hit near my throat once and I stopped it, once again I don't know if there was any pre cum as he just got hard there and then. I didn't have a flu till 8 weeks after the last incident and I think I've recently got oral thrush, can anyone shed any light on my risk or am I being a hypochondriac?
Thanks. I just find out that this last test wasn't a 4th Generation but just a regular antibody test ELISA. I guess no difference or issues with this ahh?

The risk for infection comes from unprotected intercourse, where the virus never leaves the bodies of the two people involved. The only possible risk you had, was if you "dipped" as that is a risk. I would think you would know if you had penetrated him, but if you are unsure, you can test at 6 weeks past this incident and then at 13 weeks to confirm the results. You can ready about testing here: Testing Information
Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to HIV testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs. If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine HIV tests to return with negative results.
Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than HIV. Some of the other STDs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test. Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid HIV infection. It really is that simple!

I'm a male and when it comes to sex I'm a top 100% have never bottomed.
Last Wednesday I met with a guy online to just hangout. From the start I told him no penetrative sex but I was cool to make out and jack off. This guy moaned from start to finish (kind of annoying). We didn't do any oral either. I know I'm clean cause I was tested a day before that, however I have no idea about his status and he no longer talks to me, so we never really talked about it. He started off on top of me and I rubbed my penis head on his hole most of the time without any penetration I know that for a fact what worries me is that I pre cum a lot and idk what type of risk that would be. Then we switched and I got on top of him and I just kinda humped him again without any penetration. One of his moans was louder then his others so I got scared that I had actually penetrated him but I'm not sure. I'm not a virgin and I've had unprotected sex before I know what it feels like to penetrate to someone so it's hard for me to believe that I penetrated him. Anyway I finished by ejaculating on his back!! Please ask if you need more details as I know I'm all over the place cause of my anxiety lol
Bottomline, this is what I'm worried about:
1.) if he was positive, what are the chances that I could get infected by his rectum fluid coming into contact with my pre cum?
2.) assuming I "dipped" inside of him, what are the chances that I can get infected by just one dip? I really don't think I did but I guess you never know
3.) is it possible to be feeling symptoms after just 5 days?? I've had really bad anxiety and I haven't eaten. I've felt weak and keep checking for lymph nodes and think I found one in my neck. I've also had diarrhea and I just don't know what to think. I can't get tested cause I know a week isn't enough to show anything.
HELP ME PLEASE!!!
Estas preocupando innecesario. Cualquier los detalles besando no es un riesgo por el VIH. El mismo sobre recibiendo el sexo oral.
Y darlando sexo oral no es un riesgo porque su saliva tiene mas que doce elementos y proteinas cuales son muy efectivo contra la transmicion del VIH fiable.
No tiene que probar excepto si necesita el resultado negativo solamente por su paz mental. Adelante con su vida sin dudas y recordando que sexualmente solamente la copula vaginal y anal sin usando los condones son riesgos confirmado por el VIH.
Hi Hayssam --
I hear ya. HIV is scary, my family freaked, I got an expensive divorce, went through two (OK, three) years of "why me", etc.
And yet....here we are.
We have HIV which is not (currently) curable. There's no getting around that. What do we do now? From your posts, you seem smart and articulate. By putting those assets to work getting a good doctor, getting a good therapist, talking with friends and family, etc., you will begin to feel better. The more energy you put into helping yourself (and others like you), the better you'll feel. At least, that's what worked for me. I started taking control of my life / health and it helped me out of the crisis that followed my diagnosis.
Hang in there. It gets better.
Buenas tardes Andy,
Hace 7 días un chico me practico una felacion (yo inserte el pene en su boca) Y hace cuatro días otros dos chicos me hicieron lo mismo. También nos besamos.
Ayer empece con dolor de garganta y molestia en el cuello, y hoy tengo fiebre con 37,7 grados.
Estoy realmente asustado y desesperado, creo que me infecte de HIV.
Tengo riesgo de HiV?
