Hi,
I received a protected blow job from a woman of unknown status. Should I take PEP to calm down my nerves?

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission through receiving protected oral sex.
From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the HIV Transmission Equation (see down below).


Even if you had received unprotected oral sex, the risk of acquiring HIV is low. But in this case, as you mentioned that you received protected oral sex. Using a barrier in this case was very responsible. When used correctly condoms have been proven to be a highly effective strategy to reduce transmission (1).

Therefore, since you did come in contact with HIV positive bodily fluid by receiving protected oral sex, coupled with the fact that there was no direct access to the bloodstream, means there is No Risk of transmission from this activity. Therefore, this scenario does not meet the three components of the HIV Transmission Equation (see down below).

Recommendation: No need for an HIV test with the scenario provided, please refer to a healthcare professional for other health related questions.

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Sonali
