Hiv from Massage Parlour

Question: 

Hello, first of all thank you for your great work!

Please answer my question I'm very anxious about a situation happened 2weeks ago.

I visit a massage parlor and was getting massage, the lady gave me a hand relief but she also licked my nipples and was on the way to give me oral sex. If i remember everything correct she licked my balls and my shaft then i stopped her before she took my penis in her mouth. What I'm really scared of is if she licked the top of penis with her tongue before i took her head away and said no.

So im concerned about if that quick lick with her tongue could transmit HIV?

I went back and spoked to her about that I'm scared and she was nice to show me 2 HIV tests. One was 5 weeks prior to this incident and she also went for a new one when i went with her.

Both came back negative, i don't know what the test were called but it was some blood from the finger and then u wait for 10-15minutes.

Answer: 

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about your risk of HIV acquisition given a "quick lick" and hand relief from a partner who has had two recent (negative) HIV screenings.

Assuming this exposure involved no further oral activity beyond a lick to the head of the penis, your risk of HIV acquisition is considered to be Negligible (There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission). Receiving oral sex is considered to be an act of Negligible Risk, and does not warrant HIV screening.

Without proper knowledge of your partners history and details of their screening, it is nearly impossible for us to confirm their status. It appears as though your partner had ensured you that they have a negative HIV status. From our understanding, your partner may have been issued a "Rapid" or "Point-of-Care" test, which is either a blood or oral swab that looks for HIV antibodies (1). With this exam, up to 95% of infections are detectible within 4-6 weeks, with most people developing HIV antibodies between 21-25 days (1).

Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission, please refer to a Physician for more personalized answers.

All the best,
