unprotected oral
« on: August 12, 2013, 07:16:03 PM »
Dear Sir or Madame,

I am writing to get some information about my risk.
I've already read a lot of your answers, thank you for being so nice with us, and look after our problems.

As I ve checked lot of question and answer and I also tried to find some up-to-dated information about the risk of giving oral-sex without condom, but i did not find any sites which speech were based on latest research.
As i saw in the past (arround 2006-2007) u usually answered there is a low risk to get Hiv from unprotected oral-sex, but nowadays you say, let me quote: ''The risk for hiv are ...
Sharing IV drug needles immediately after use.
Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Mother to child during or shortly after birth
Very specific healthcare situations.'' and also i read this: http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=49035.0
 , jkinatl2 posted a lot of studies which said saliva kills HIV. and also: "<<Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, who heads the sexually transmitted disease prevention effort at the San Francisco Department of Public Health, bases his conclusion on a new study of 239 gay or bisexual men who reported no anal or vaginal sex and no injection-drug use in the prior six months. Ninety-eight percent said they had given he
had without condoms. Twenty-eight percent said they knew their partner was HIV-positive, and of those, 39 percent said they had swallowed semen. None of the men became infected.

The risk of HIV transmission via oral sex, Klausner maintains, "is very, very, very, very, very low and may be zero.">>""

But as i knew there is medium risk, because the little cuts and bleeding gums etc. and do oral sex with condom as well, and do not let the other to ejaculate into your mouth to reduce the risk.

Ahw, i am little bit worried and confused, because my english is not the best, just would like to get information in my case as well.

so my situation was having protected-Traditional (vaginal) sex with a man, and having non-protected oral with ejaculation... but as soon as i gulped..(because thats polite, and the stomach-acid must to kill it anyway) i brushed my teeth about 5 hours before the situation, and i didn't eat anything, and i didn't realise any cuts or something like this. and of course i asked him about his status, or any sexual illness, told he doesnt have,but as we were drunk, maybe he didnt know about his status. I know i was negative, because i am always protecting myself (except oral), and i do test before im having sex with a new boyfriend. But i was easy minded to have one happy-go-lucky night with him. I feel so bad because this, i cannot study and be happy. I am a little bit hipochonder.  :(  :-\
However why i started to worry, i got soar throat 2days later. But to be honest i drunk very cold water with ice, in the 40C, and i realised its very cold, so maybe the cold iced water caused that, but that time i started to worry, what if not?
I know many other STD can common with it, but the most dangerous is the hiv, and as it happened a week ago, i have to wait to be tested.

I would be grateful if u would share your opinion about this case. I am sure i would be able to continue my days normally.
Looking forward to hearing from you, and wish all the best!
Have a nice night :)

Oral sex isn't a risk in the situation as you described it and you do not need to test over this specific incident .

Its seems you have read what we have to say about oral sex and we stand behind that information still . You didn't have a risk and need not worry about getting HIV from giving a blow job .

Keep using condoms consistently and correctly for vaginal and anal sex and you will remain HIV free . Get yearly sexual health checkups for all std's at least once a year , its the responsible thing to do .
