You never needed to test over having received oral sex. In the entire history of the HIV epidemic there has never been a single confirmed case of transmission in that manner to a guy. You won't make history by becoming the first.

You are worrying needlessly and there is no need for testing again. It's absolutely not a risk. Period.

Hi Ann!
         I need your opinion, I have this hairy white coat on the back of my tongue since 11/29 and test negative at 6 and 8 week. Does that mean this not relate to hiv? Thank you. I try my best to move on but when i look at my tongue it just hard to do. ???

You never had a risk of contracting HIV. Starting reading the replies that you have been given.

You need to stop self-diagnosing yourself. You're not a doctor. A hairy white tongue is in no way an HIV specific occurence.

You absolutely did not have a risk for HIV. If you have troubling symptoms go to your doctor to discuss them. You have no basis in HIV science for concerns about HIV.

I am also going to warn you that if you continue to return here about this non-risk incident you are very quickly going to find yourself getting a Time Out from the site. HIV is not your problem no matter what your head is telling you to the contrary.

Cut it out and get on with your life. Really.
