I gave a HIV + makes blowjob deepthroat

Question: 

Hi I gave a HIV+ man a deep throat blowjob with a condom. After the act I put gloves on and took the condom and filled it with water and the base had a small pin hole probably cuz it was a toothy blowjob I gave. The tip And other areas were all intact just 3/4 up closer to the base of the condom was a hole. So I took a glass of water put hydrogen peroxide in it about 1/6 of the glad and gargled with it than also drank a big sip then I took mouthwash and left it in my mouth for 2 minutes and swallowed some mouth wash just in case some cum came through that pin hole. Also when I put the condom on the hive positive guy when rolling the condom on my finger was touching his penis head as I pulled his foreskin back and then my fingers touched the condom so I'm sure some of his natural uncircumcised penis head secretion got on the coondom while rolling it on. I'm scared I got HIV from this I never bottomed or anything just wanted to try giving a bj and I didn't even like doing it I'm straight just been watching a lot of porn and it gave me the idea to do this. What's my chances of HIV in this encounter. I drank the hydrogen peroxide about 2 minutes after the encounter. And the mouth wash after that. Please help thanks do I need a 4th generation naat test? P24 one the anxiety is killing me.

Answer: 

Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. We are pleased to assist you!

We would be happy to disclose some information that may help you decide how to proceed.

Giving oral sex is considered a low-risk activity for HIV transmission, since there have only been a few confirmed reports of HIV infections attributed to this activity. These usually occur under certain identifiable circumstances (e.g. the presence of another STI) that may not apply to you. Moreover, by using a condom you have reduced the risk of acquiring HIV further.

We understand that being uncertain about whether or not a condom has adequately protected you during sexual activity can be very nerve-racking. It may bring some relief to learn that saliva contains enzymes that inhibit the growth of HIV, and HIV cannot live outside of a human host or after exposure to the air, which reduces the risk associated with giving oral sex and many other activities: http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart. In contrast, the hygienic practises you have described do not affect the level of risk or protect you from acquiring HIV.

Lastly, if the individual has not disclosed their HIV status there is no reason to assume that this individual is living with HIV. We discourage speculation about exposures, since this perpetuates stigma and can spread misleading information about individuals who are living or affected by HIV/AIDS.

If you choose to be tested for this exposure, all HIV tests administered by a healthcare professional can be considered reliable and conclusive at 84 days post-exposure or later.

I trust I have answered your questions. Feel free to contact the AIDS Vancouver Helpline again, or call us (604) 253-0566 for immediate assistance with general inquiries.

Sincerely,
