No you were not at risk from receiving oral. Please take time to read the "Welcome" thread and its links.

Whether you ejaculated or not was irrelevant in terms of any risk to you in that incident.

But if you're sexually active then you do need to know the basics about HIV transmission. Please read the lesson as Rod suggested. This epidemic is going to be around for a long time to come. By getting the basics down clearly you can enjoy your sexuality, protect your health and spare yourself the kind of unnecessary worry you are experiencing.

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines - including this one:

When you created an account with the AIDSmeds Forums, you agreed to have only one account. Starting multiple accounts is against the rules of the Forum and may cause you to be banned from our forums.

I rejected the new account you applied for. Do that again and you'll be banned. Thank you for your cooperation.

READ the Transmission Lesson linked to in the Welcome thread. If you'd done this the last time you were here, you'd already know that kissing is not a risk for hiv infection.

Unless you're in the habit of repeatedly punching the person you want to kiss in the mouth, there's not going to be enough blood present to pose a risk.

Feelings of guilt will not infect you with hiv. Unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse will. Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

Condoms are a girl's best friend
