I was recieving the oral sex from a woman who is sex worker.
Had the condom.
But on pubic area in hair had ingrown hair/pimple.
She dribbled saliva that landed in the area.
What is HIV risk? I need test?
Thank so much to answer my worries.

Hello and thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question about HIV transmission.

It's great to hear that you decided to use a condom- it is the most effective way to protect yourself and your partners from all sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

Receiving oral sex presents a negligible risk for HIV- no one has ever acquired HIV from receiving oral sex. Saliva is not a fluid that poses a risk for transmission and saliva tends to inhibit the transmission of HIV so there is not a risk of HIV for you in this situation. You do not need HIV testing for this situation.

If you any other HIV related questions in the future, please contact the Helpline again or call 604-696-4666.
Best wishes,
Marnelle
