Unprotected Oral Sex and kissing with Canker Sores

Does receiving unprotected Oral sex (blow job) from a woman of unknown HIV status warrant for a HIV test. I know it is a low risk scenario but should I go for HIV testing to relieve myself of anxiety. I also deep kissed here and realized that I had a small canker sore inside my lower lip, if she had any blood in her mouth, will it increase my risk of contracting the virus. There was no vaginal and anal intercourse, we just performed the above mentioned acts. This was my first sexual experience in life, can it be a reason I am so anxious. The girl has been messaging me to have sex but I have been avoiding her just because she had multiple partners and I don't know how to ask her about her HIV status. One of the reason of avoiding her is my anxiety of STDs as well. I feel so guilty of my already unprotected exposure that I don't even want to have protected sex.

Can there be an HIV and Gonorrhea transmission at the same time through saliva?

Hello and good day!

I had an unprotected insertive oral sex with a man whom I didn't know the HIV status. After 2 days, I noticed a discharge being secreted by my penis. I immediately went to my doctor and he said that I probably got this through unprotected insertive oral sex. At the moment, I am not in my medication for my discharge. He also recommended to have my HIV test after 6 weeks. Here are my questions and hoping that you'll consider anwering them.

1. Is it possible to acquire HIV through saliva and insertive oral sex?

2. Can the gonorrhea bacteria and HIV virus combine at the same time that I may possibly also be infected by both?

Thank you very much for considering my inquiry. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Soccer incident

Hi there,

A couple of months ago I played a soccer match. During that match, I was involved in tackle, as many times in a match, but in this case, the opponent accidently put his studs on my knee, scraping of my skin. The wound was a bit like when you fall of your bike: your skin is peeled off and there blood visible (some watery blood), but it doenst come out, it stays in the wound. In that same incident, I apparently also pushed the other guy in his face, but I don't know where, because i was looking at the ball, but I felt something moist on my index finger. About 15-30 secs after the collision I looked at my knee and saw the wound and without thinking much of it, I wiped it off with my indexfinger. I continued my match without thinking of it, but after the match I started panicking for some reason, thinking: wait a second: what if the moist feeling on my finger wasn't sweat or saliva, but blood? Maybe I damaged his lip and was there some blood on it? (I have to be honest that I am sure I pushed his lip)
Can you get HIV by rubbing blood in an open wound? The blood didnt come out, so if I rubbed it in, his blood was staying in the wound as well...If you know what I mean?


I had unprotected INSERTIVE oral sex with a prostitute. The following day i went to the Clinic and i was given PEP. Then i looked for the prostitute the day after starting PEP and took her for HIV 1/2 (Duo) serum test, Syphilis test, HBsAg and AntiHCV (rapid) which all came back Non reactive. I went back to the doctor after the results and he told me since the results were negative i should stop PEP and move on. so i stopped PEP on my 5th day. But am sick and worried of the fact that she might have been in her window period. Though she assured me that she is not sick because every 3 months she goes for check up and practices safe sex. The only time she does not use the condom is during oral sex.

Am i at Risk of contracting HIV from receiving unprotected oral sex on my penis? Was i wrong to stop PEP? Was the doctor right to ask me to stop PEP? and have read somewhere were it says insertive oral sex is negligible risk and no case has been documented. Am i sick.

Wounds on lips (close contact) chance of HIV transmission

Hello guys,

Thank you for your philantrophic activity right here.You are helping a lot of people to care about their health.

I wanted to ask you a couple of questionsabout a situation

I was drinking coffee with my friend and we both had little bleeding cuts on our mouths.We were very close to each other and I could sense her breath to my face ( no direct local contact)

1.Is there a chance for an infection to occur by blood coming to each other's wounds

2.If there is not why so , it is said that in air virus becomes non transmittable but why so , I heard that need 1 minute to die. Which statement is true? Not transmittable immediately , or within 1 minute

3.Once there are a bleeding wound(even small) there is an entry point for the blood to come into the blood, right?

I know well of the transmission equation and the saliva inhibition factor, but it does not say in percentages, what low risk is.

4.If this is a low risk stuation do I have to go for hiv test? I live in not very well developed country and it requres time and money to arrange that(yes, these countries still exist :D ), so it is really important for me to know what to do

5. Is PEP recommended in situations like this

Thanks in advance for adressing all my questions and for the explanation, thanks
