Nothing you have described has put you at risk for HIV transmission. Receiving oral is one of the most common of sexual activities and no one, male or female, has ever been confirmed to have been infected in that manner.

Ditto no risk whatsoever for kissing and biting.

I don't see any need whatsoever for testing nor for further concern on your part. Just make sure that if and when you are having either vaginal or anal intercourse the insertive partner is always wearing a condom. Those two activities are the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV.

No, You cannot contract HIV from kissing or biting or receiving oral.

the first in over thirty years of HIV epidemiology? There is always a first. Heck, HIV could mutate and become airborne. Other virus particles have done so. But what are the odds?

The upside of your scenario is that your healthcare would likely be free of charge, and you would be studied for the rest of your life to determine how your physiology differs from other primates.
"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

No, JK was not suggesting you get tested. He was humorously suggesting that if you were to become infected through oral it would be such an astounding event medically that you would become a figure of great interest.

Obviously and quite understandably you're not feeling humorous about your concern. But you are worrying needlessly and no, you don't need to get tested. There was absolutely no risk.

If you had a genuine risk then 13 weeks would be the recommended testing point. However, in your case, although you don't seem to believe it, you did not have a risk. So getting tested is strictly for your peace of mind. 77 days would be ok for you specifically because you didn't have a risk.

And I certainly exepct you will test negative.

   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.

There really isn't anything more for us to say to you about this. You did not have a risk for HIV and it's no surprise that you tested negative. There is no need for further testing.

HIV is not your problem. You are HIV negative.

I am also going to caution you that if you continue to return here with concerns about this non-HIV situation you are quickly going to find yourself getting a 28 day Time Out from the site.

You're welcome. And if you can't "get your head working well again," the smart thing is to get some professional help in sorting things out. We can't do that for you in this setting.
