I was involved in vaginal sex twice 12 weeks back(86days) and i got HIV rapid blood test after 1 month and today (86) days after exposure both came out non reactive.But 5 weeks back i done oral sex with that girl only breast sucking for 10 seconds but she had burn wound at the side of her breast which happened 3 -4 days before that ,there were black blister like fluid filled structures and i am anxious that my mouth might have touched there and then i had a cut on my finger at that time which happened a day before that incident and it bled when happened but was not bleeding at the time of oral sex.Does my that finger or my mouth put me at risk again or not? I saw no blood coming from her burn wound but i am anxious it might have.When sucking i saw no blood on nipple moreover.

Hi there, thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for HIV and AIDS related information.

The simple answer to your question is no, this last experience does not put you at risk for HIV. The fact that you had a cut on your finger does not put you at risk whatsoever, superficial cuts heal immediately and do not provide access for a virus into your blood stream. You also do not need to worry about your mouth coming into contact with her burn. The virus dies immediately upon exposure to the air. Also we have an enzyme in our saliva that breaks down the virus making it unable to infect. For these reasons any oral contact you may have had with her burn would not put you at risk for HIV.

Regarding your testing, at test 84 days or longer after an exposure is considered absolutely conclusive. So with your negative result at 86 days, you can be absolutely sure that you do not have HIV.

I hope this answers your questions and alleviates your anxiety. You do not need to worry about HIV based on this experience. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us again or visit http://www.avert.org for additional reliable HIV related information.

In health,

Arne, AIDS Vancouver Helpline Volunteer
