I had an unprotected contact with another man. In the incident I made oral sex on him, he did not ejaculate in my mouth though. After that his sperm touched my penis and mixed with my sperm. I think the risks are low, but I'm still worried, please help me.

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 unprotected oral sex is considered a low risk activity, meaning that transmission is possible only in select circumstances (like if you had some kind of major wound after getting some dental work done). If your penis touched his penis and fluids were involved, this is a no risk situation. To understand that last point, check out our transmission equation:
HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection
You'll see that required for transfer are all of a fluid involved in transfer, an activity involved in transfer, and direct access to the bloodstream. That last activity is not an activity known to be involved in transfer, nor does it provide direct access to the bloodstream. This is why it is no risk.

We encourage you to check out our [risk assessment page](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart) to see the risk level of these and many other common activities.

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