9 days ago i visited a professional escort (prostitute) to have sex with her.

We performed the following:

1) she gave me oral sex with condom
2) i gave to her unprotected oral sex (she did not ejaculate)
3 ) performed sex with using condom

The problem is that 40 minutes before the act i bite my lip from inside and a had a little bleeding. Is this considered as "wound" ?
No dental, cuts or gum bleeding was present in my palate.

I'm very stressed, i have read many of your answers here but please advise what to do?

Hi there, and thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you're concerned about the possibility of HIV transmitting during an encounter. We're happy to answer your question for you.

These situations have different risk levels associated with them. Her giving you oral sex carries with it a negligible risk of her transmitting HIV to you. You giving her unprotected oral sex is considered a low risk activity, and having protected sex is also considered to be a low risk activity. Low risk means that while it is possible for HIV to transmit, specific conditions are required. When giving oral sex, this might be that you had had major dental work, or when having penetrative sex, that the condom breaks. You state that prior to your encounter, you bit your lip to the point it was bleeding. This does not increase your risk to any significant extent, as it is not considered a wound that would increase your risk. Wounds that increase your risk are much larger, like the type you might have after getting major dental work done.

That said, have you ever gone for an HIV test? We always recommend routine HIV testing for all sexually active individuals. So if you haven't had a test, we'd encourage you to go.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question. We hope this eases your stress a bit.
