Hi,
i would like to know if i have any risk for HIV.
A women did a handjob with her saliva she spat two times and then she made me a blowjob with a condom.
I ejaculate in the condom.
Do i have any risk of HIV in this situation?
I don't remember if there was blood in her saliva. I'm not sure.
Thank you so much.

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquisition of HIV from receiving oral sex. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Negligible Risk. Hand job alone is considered a no risk for HIV transmission but receiving oral sex (blow job) falls under Negligible risk. However, there has never been a confirmed report.

Only certain body fluids—blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and breast milk—from a person who has HIV can transmit HIV. These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the bloodstream (from a needle or syringe) for transmission to occur. Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, vagina, penis, and mouth.

In general, there’s little to no risk of getting HIV from oral sex. HIV is not transmitted through saliva; factors that may increase the risk of transmitting HIV through oral sex are ejaculation in the mouth with oral ulcers, bleeding gums, genital sores, and the presence of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), which may or may not be visible.

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