Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about acquiring HIV from engaging in protected anal sex, unprotected oral sex, and the survival of HIV within semen over a month period of time. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Low Risk (Evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met).

HIV transmission occurs when bodily fluid containing HIV has direct access to the bloodstream of an individual that is of HIV negative status through a High Risk, Low Risk, or Negligible Risk activity (2).

In this scenario the protected anal sex and unprotected oral sex are both considered to be Low Risk. This suggests that HIV transmission can occur if the right conditions are met. For the unprotected oral sex there is an exchange of bodily fluids which could possibly result in HIV transmission. When engaging in protected anal sex the main risk of HIV acquisition stems from the possible misuse or breakage of the condom (1).

The act of taking semen into the mouth without injury is a no risk scenario. You stated that you cut your mouth around a month later and was wondering about HIV survival for this long. HIV would not remain active over this period of time on your body (1). When bodily fluid containing HIV is exposed to the environment it quickly becomes inactive (1). The bodily fluid you are asking about would not be in your system a month later when you cut your mouth. This particular scenario is No Risk.

Recommendation: Refer to a health care provider for HIV testing.
