As long as you always use condoms for either vaginal or anal intercourse you will be well protected from HIV transmission sexually. It's really just as simple as that.

Nothing you are reporting put you at risk.

Ya, ya, ya. Throw in whatever details you want to and it still is not going to make any difference as far as HIV is concerned as long as you didn't have unprotected intercourse.

Other STDs are much easier to acquire so we do advise that anyone who's sexually active ought to regularly have a full STD panel done. That means at least once a year.

The ongoing epidemic is not relevant to your situation. You didn't do anything which put you at risk no matter what details you continue to throw into the mix.

As far as MSM and sexual risk for HIV transmission, it's all about unprotected anal intercourse. Everything else is strictly theoretical as far as potential risk is concerned.

There's no need for testing nor for further concern on your part about HIV. Period.

We're not interested in nor responsible for what other websites say. We give you the real deal here.

Yes, there can be HIV in saliva but not in a viable form.

Ok Andy i guess you mean by that there will be some HIV found in saliva of a positive person but they are not infectious or not working , so Even if some blood occure or ulcer happening inside the positive guy mouth it is Still Not infectious  and in a mean time can he still give me oral sex a not ???     Sorry Andy i am a bit curious and really need to know more about it because i like to engage into MSM activities esp into oral sex only  but not into  anal sex  :-[

In the entire history of the epidemic and countless blowjobs later not one man has ever been confirmed to have become infected through getting a blowjob. Not one. It's safe to say you won't make history by becoming the first.

And in longterm studies of sero-discordant couples, both gay and straight, who had lots of unprotected oral sex mutually, not one sero-negative partner has become infected.

Common sense dictates that you should not give oral if you have a gaping, bleeding wound in your mouth or very bad oral care. Otherwise your saliva affords a very effective barrier to the transmission of viable HIV.

Ok Andy you are superb and have giving me a confidence , you and other guys here have done a very good job by sharing the knowledge and experience of the whole entire epedemic of HIV on how it can infect or cannot infect isue here . So next time i shouldnt b that worry of having a receiving or giving in the matter of oral sex . Of course if i had a very big wound , ulcer or any gum bleeding happening i will not do any oral sex .  Thanks Andy and take care of yourself .

Heng,

Getting a blowjob is NO RISK for hiv, no matter if you're circumcised or uncircumcised. GETTING A BLOWJOB IS NO RISK!

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

If you re-read what I have written above previously, you'll see longterm studies have resulted in zero infections among sero-discordant partners who had lots of unprotected oral and only protected intercourse.

Your saliva has over a dozen elements which effectively prevent the transmission of viable HIV. Is it impossible to get infected through giving oral? Theoretically it is possible, but in the real world of HIV in cases where infection is claimed to have happened in that manner they don't hold up under careful scientific scrutiny.

If you have SEVERELY bad oral care then get tested at 13 weeks and collect what I still expect will be a negative result. And if you oral care is really that poor then I also suggest you see a dentist and/or perodentist to correct it.
