Oral Sex - Positive Partner
« on: November 20, 2013, 10:29:52 AM »
Hello -

I have read through much of this forum, and have a pretty clear understanding of the very low risk of infection with oral sex.  However, having my first experience with a positive parter, I just want to share the details and alleviate and cause for concern.

I recently shared oral sex with a positive partner.  He was healthy with a low viral load (as I was told).  I did lightly brush my teeth about 20 minutes before hand, but overall I have good oral hygiene.

My partner was rather well endowed, so a number of times I found myself gagging.  Towards the end I heaved a little and could feel some stomach bile surface ... very little.  Anyways, I swallowed it down and he ejaculated pretty deep in my mouth, all of which was swallowed.

I have preformed oral sex in the past and typically swallow with all of my partners.  Due to this I am tested regularly (every 3 months).  Should I be at all more concerned with this instance?  If so, how long should I wait before I get tested? 6 weeks?

Thank you all of your advice and support!

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 nothing to worry about unless you have significant wounds in your mouth and your partner has a sky high viral load . The kind of wounds I'm talking about would make it too painful to give head in the first place I might add .

Thank you Jeff. I figured as much, but just wanted another opinion.
