Hi. I seriously need help right now. I was diagnosed with Periodontal disease (Gum Problem) and from that moment i stopped doing Blowjob to someone without condom. However there are times when i kissed a guy but normally its just smooching (without tongue, normally its lip to lip but on a numerous level). I have experience a lot of oral sex wherein i am the insertive partner, if sometimes i do blowjob i make sure they are wearing condom. I never do anal fun (NEVER) because i am very much aware that it has a high risk of acquring the virus. even with condom because i normally get paranoid very easily.

One day i met this guy from gay app. I had a swollen gums at the back of my molar. I kissed him and again without tongue because i know that i have a swollen gums and i dont know if i have cuts in my mouth. He gave me a blowjob without protection and he just jerked off until finish. I just suck his nipples to also help him cum faster. After awhile he admitted he is HIV positive. And now im slowly dying with fear and anxiety, i couldnt sleep or eat. please help me i need giudance.

1. Do i need testing with this incident?
2. With so many insertive oral sex that i did, did i put my self on risk?
3. Could i get infected with if we only did smooching without tongue? Could my gum disease be a factor even if its just lip to lip on a numerous level?

Please help me.....

Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It seems you are concerned about HIV infection after an oral sex encounter with HIV positive individual. We are glad to provide some information.

When HIV is exposed to saliva it does not transmit. The kissing that you described does not put you at risk. Giving anal sex with condom is regarded as a Low Risk activity as a few cases of HIV infection have been confirmed through this activity. At Aids Vancouver we encourage people to use HIV testing as health maintenance routine. This means that you get tested once or twice a year. This will give you peace of mind as well as providing an opportunity for early intervention if it is ever required. We encourage you to consider getting tested since you have been exposed to activities with low risk.

The Aids Vancouver Helpline Online forum has postings that are related to your question that you can read for additional information. If you have any further questions feel free to contact us again.

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

In health
