Hello,

A week ago I hooked up with another guy while intoxicated. This is what we did and please give me your advice on my risk of contracting HIV. I am currently having cold like symptoms including cough and sore throat a week after the hookup. He told me that he tested a week prior and had a rapid HIV blood test and it came back negative. That night we kissed all night, played with eachother penis for a short period of time (did not ejaculate or precum), he gave me oral for about 5 seconds but because I didnt feel comfortable with it, he stopped (there was no precum). There was no anal sex whatsoever. The next morning I ejaculated myself onto his body. He did not cum at all during our hookup. I have become very OCD about getting HIV and am so worried that somehow I have contracted HIV. I am very certain he and I both did not have any cuts or sores on our mouths or genitals. Please give me your advice about if you think there was any risk involved. Thanks

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.

Kissing is a no risk activity. Receiving oral sex is a negligible risk activity, and mutual masturbation is also considered a no risk activity. No risk means HIV cannot transmit through activities such as these, and negligible risk means that while theoretically possible, transmissions have never actually been observed to occur through activities such as these. To see the risks associated with these and many other common activities, we encourage you to check out our [risk assessment page](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart).

As for the symptoms you are experiencing, we at AIDS Vancouver are not healthcare providers, so cannot comment on them. However, HIV infections are never diagnosed based on symptoms alone, simply because the symptoms of an HIV infection are quite common to many other common medical conditions. Testing is the only way to diagnose an HIV infection. If you're concerned about any symptoms you're experiencing, we'd encourage you to see a healthcare provider.

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