Title: French Kiss and Receiving Oral Sex Worried
Post by: NervousAnxious on June 27, 2022, 07:09:13 am
I got tested 26 days after a french kiss and receiving an oral sex with an HIV positive guy who has detectable load. It came back negative using an antibody 3d gen test. What are my chances of acquiring HIV in the said activities? He is not undetectable and I'm worried I was infected because of the large amount of saliva that was on my penis. After he sucked my penis, I waited for it to dry and put on a lube and masturbated. I'm worried that the saliva got into the opening of my penis.

Any honest opinion about this? Is there possible that my test for the next couple of weeks will turn positive?

You didn't acquire HIV from the activities mentioned as they are not an HIV risk to you.

Saliva doesn't contain viable HIV, in fact, its hostile toward HIV and breaks down the receptors needed for HIV to cause infection.  Receiving a blowjob lacks the conditions required for acquiring HIV, thus it makes sense that after nearly 40 years of this pandemic in terms of BJ's, there hasn't been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked"), and you will not be the worlds first.

Move on with your life, use condoms, consider PrEP as an additional layer of HIV prevention and test out of standard routine yearly.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms, and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

Thank you for your reply. Is masturbating my penis with lube after I receive an oral sex from him elevated the risk? And yes he is HIV+ with detectable viral load. I did french kissed him (I didnt gave him a blowjob) and after like 2 to 3 mins I've inhaled air, they say that the virus is dies in air and I gargled for a mouth wash. Does gargling with a mouthwash spread the HIV virus my gums or teeth? Which of the two is more safer? Giving an oral or receiving an oral sex? I'm still anxious and worried while waiting for weeks to get tested again.

Masturbating isn't an HIV risk and I've already explained that receiving a blowjob isn't an HIV risk.

I've already explained kissing is not an HIV risk to you. As for breathing, HIV isn't an airborne virus, you can't acquire HIV from breathing in the same air as this person and the mouth wash question is irrelevant as there was no viable HIV exposure.

Time to move on with your life, kissing and receiving a blowjob isn't an HIV risk, end of story, so if you ask me again about kissing or receiving a blowjob it will result in a 28-day ban from these forums.
