Hi there, and thanks a lot 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.

Giving oral sex is considered a low risk activity, while receiving oral sex is considered a negligible risk activity. Low risk means that while transmissions are possible, they usually require specific circumstances to occur (like having had recent major dental work, for example). Negligible risk means that transmissions are theoretically possible, but have never been observed to actually occur these ways. To see the risks associated with these and various other activities, we encourage you to check out our [risk assessment page](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart).

You don't require testing after this specific encounter. However, have you ever been for an HIV test? We at AIDS Vancouver recommend routine HIV testing for all sexually active individuals, so if you've never been for a test we'd encourage you to go.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has been answered fully.
