In August 2014 I visit a commercial sex trade worker, mouth kissing, she fingering herself and later she masturbate me a couple of seconds, 10 to 20, later I kiss her breast and it was some breast milk 4 drops. The rest, nothing happens, but now I became quite obsessive with this matter, specially because the vaginal fluid in my penis. I get tested with the Oraquick in February 2015 and I get negative. Thus, I would like to ask what are the chances to get the Virus in this kind of encounter and if it is necessary to get and ELISA to confirm the result (what are the chances of a false negative in this kind of quick test).
I really appreciate your help.
With all my respect for the work that you do every day.

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline forum.

It sounds like you're worried about a sexual encounter you had and about the accuracy of your HIV test results.

In order to acquire HIV the virus needs to come in direct contact with the bloodstream. Both handjobs and taking breast milk into the mouth have a negligible risk of HIV. This means that there have been no reported cases of a person acquiring HIV from these activities.

Oraquick and any other brands of home HIV test are not recommended because they can be difficult to follow and often yield false results and also provide no additional health or counselling resources for the individual taking the test. So, for more accurate results and to put your mind at ease I would definitely recommend getting the 3rd generation ELISA test, which has a 99.8% rate of accuracy.

For additional information on HIV transmission and testing you can always check out the AIDS Vancouver website.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions and with your concerns.
