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.

Insertive sex with a condom is considered a low risk activity. Receiving oral sex is considered a negligible risk activity. Low risk means that while transmission is possible, it requires specific circumstances (like the condom breaking, for example). Negligible risk means that while it is theoretically possible for transmissions to occur, they have never been observed to actually occur. To see the risks associated with these and other common activities, we encourage you to check out or [risk assessment page](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart).

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.
