may 29th 15, i had an exposure with possible hiv
he performed oral sex on me without protection
i finished in his mouth, actually he swallowed it
i only gave him a handjob and french kiss of course
before i filled his mouth with my cum.

two days later i started reading my hiv risk in this exposure
since he is gay, and i am straight curious and he is actually almost getting married with other guy that
has spended for about 5 month with him and he told me they dont did not use protection, it makes me think that he is a good candidate to be tested and therefore thats why i am worry.


today jun 6 15, i performed an oralquick hiv home test on him
and it came out negative on him, so i think it should be fine since he is been
tested negative. he never refused to take a hiv rapid test
he always told me he is negative as well.

* what is my chances of get HIV from this exposure?
* he wanted me to perform oral on HIM but i did not do it.
* i did not have an intercourse with him.



PLEASE i will appreciate you so much if you tell me accurate information about my exposure
i am dying of nervous and kind of depressed.

Hello, and thank you for contacting Aids Vancouver Helpline. I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling stressed about this matter, and I hope my answer can help alleviate some of your stress.

First I will break down the activities that you described. Receiving oral sex is considered a "negligible risk" activity, meaning although in theory we can imagine a small chance of HIV transmission, there has not been any reported cases of anyone acquiring HIV by this method.

Handjob and french kiss pose no risk of HIV transmission. HIV transmission requires a fluid harboring the HIV virus (blood, semen, vaginal and anal fluids, and breastmilk) to directly access your blood stream (e.g. through vagina, anus, open bleeding cuts). This route is not presented by kissing, or a handjob.

*Giving* oral sex however, is considered a low-risk activity, meaning there has been a few cases documented of people acquiring HIV through giving oral sex. However, in those cases there are usually other factors that increase the chance of HIV transmission, such as sores or other STDs.

Therefore, based on the activities you described, there is no risk of HIV transmission, The fact that your partner tested negative for HIV is further good news. Although the oraquick test is a good indication that he is HIV negative, keep in mind that for the test to be considered "conclusive", it must be taken at least 12 weeks after possible exposure or high risk activity.

I hope that answered your questions. Feel free to contact us again for more information.

In health,

Ali,
