Chances of HIV through Oral Sex
« on: September 06, 2012, 08:37:00 AM »
Hi

I received un protected blow job from a stripper. Assuming the lady is HIV + and I have some inviSible/visible cuts , sores on my penis.

What are the chances of getting HIV ? Am I at risk ? Do I need to get tested

John, receiving oral is one of the most common of sexual activities. In the entire history of the epidemic no guy has ever been confirmed to have been infected with HIV in that manner. No matter what details you throw into the mix it's safe to say you are not going to make history by becoming the first.

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

Period.

There is absolutely no way to tell through symptoms whether or not you are experiencing ARS.

However, unless there's something you have omitted from your story, you certainly didn't get it from having your penis sucked. HIV is not transmitted that way.

You do NOT get HIV from getting a blow job. This is in NO WAY an HIV incident. Not only is saliva NOT infectious, it contains over a dozen elements that render HIV inactive.

Here's the science:

The qualification we use at AIDSMEDS is based on three distinct and separate studies conducted over the course of two decades with serodiscordant couples. We do not rely on anecdotal evidence insofar as HIV transmission is concerned, especially not now, where the current state of the scientific and epidemiological art is as advanced as it is. With more people living longer and healthier lives, a large enough collection of serodiscordant couples has finally emerged to create blind studies where HIV transmission routes can be studied with scientific quantification.

Here are some of the  scientific findings.


No incident HIV infections among MSM who practice exclusively oral sex.
