Hi , I had recently received oral sex with gay for 50 sec and before doing that I was scared asked to stop but he didn't do that, and I released my sperm in his mouth and after a few minutes I urined and washed my pennies with water and I'm scared about this, with this hiv can be transmitted ? Please give me suggestion because I'm feeling weak thinking about this and unable to sleep ! I don't have any cuts on my pennis inner and outer . And I don't know whether he has any cuts and ulcers in his mouth

Hi there,

Thanks for contacting AIDS Vancouver for HIV/AIDS-related information.

The short answer is no, you did not place yourself at great risk of HIV and do not need to be worried.

Let me explain why: For HIV transmission to occur, body fluids (blood, semen, anal/vaginal fluids), plus a high risk activity (unprotected anal/vaginal intercourse, needle sharing), plus direct access to your bloodstream (i.e. through the vagina, urethra in the penis, other mucosal membranes, needle sharing) equals a risk of HIV transmission.

Oral sex is considered to be negligible risk. This means that while there is a possibility of transmission because body fluids are involved (i.e. your semen), there have been NO documented cases of HIV transmission occurring in this way.

So what makes oral less risky than vaginal or anal? The first is the mouth. Unlike the vagina or rectum that can provide direct access to the bloodstream, the mouth does not do it as well. You should also note that there is an enzyme in the blood that inhibits the production of HIV, making transmission very unlikely. In the worst case scenario, the person most at risk is the person who PERFORMS oral sex, since if they had cuts in their mouth, the semen would be what places them at risk. Trying to gain access to your urethra through the mouth is much more difficult.

I trust I have answered your questions and relieved some of your anxieties; however, if there are more, please don't hesitate to ask.

Best
