Hi I am a 26 year old male and was in cuba for one week till the 8th of February. I was very drunk on the 7th and a prostitute from cuba took advantage of me and went down on me for 30 seconds. Symtoms I have right now are diarrhea, night sweats, dry mouth with possible trush, feeling tired and just feel drained of energy. I don't know weather she had cuts or ulcers in her mouth as it was 4 in the morning when this happened but I have been having some trouble peeing and some irritation (irritation is gone now I believe) and also have been coughing up some blood since I have had a cough since I got back. Please answer as I dont know weather some of these are am because of stress or do I have hiv. I did get tested saturday when i got back the following day and everything came back negative. I dont know weather she had hsv 2 and the test results didnt say anything as I cant get tested yet. What is the possibility I might have contacted hiv from recieving oral sex?

Hi there, 

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission in the event that you had received unprotected oral sex.

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Negligible Risk (There is no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. However, there is a theoretical possibility of transmission under certain extenuating circumstances). This scenario is determined to be Negligible because although there is an extremely low chance of transmission, it is still possible. However, data is quite limited in this mode of transmission. In the event that there was a large amount of bleeding or cuts in the mouth of the person performing oral sex on you, there is a theoretical possibility of transmission. 

In order for HIV transmission to occur, the requirements of our HIV Transmission Equation must be met (see below). 

There must be the presence of HIV positive fluid (in this case, blood in the mouth), with direct access to the bloodstream, through a High, Low, or Negligible Risk event. 

For Negligible Risk scenarios brought to us, we generally recommend that although there have been no reported cases or evidence of HIV transmission in this event, it would be best to refer to a physician or health care provider for more detailed answers. 

HIV antigens and antibodies, depending on the test that you receive, are most likely to be found through adequate testing methods, provided the time frame you receive testing is within the test guidelines.
