Hi, yesterday after I got drunk at a bar,I met a girl of easy virtue and she performed a unprotected oral sex(blowjob) for around 20 seconds .I seriously doubted her health conditions as she looked slightly ill and I am not sure if she had any sores/bleeding inside her mouth .My anxiety started as I had a rise in temperature of my body form two hours after the encounter and still continuing. Please answer my question and thank you very much

Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions. We're happy to help!

In terms of your risk level, receiving oral sex is considered to be a negligible risk activity, meaning that while it is theoretically possible to acquire HIV in this manner, there has never been a confirmed report. If you are interesting in testing, keep in mind that all tests here in Canada are considered conclusive 3 months after your most recent exposure. However, I also want you to keep in mind that your risk level was only negligible.

I also wanted to briefly address the symptoms you described. There are no specific symptoms of HIV. In fact, certain individuals may never develop symptoms, and for those who do, most symptoms will go away after a few days, or at most, a couple of weeks. This is why the only way to diagnose HIV is to get tested. Because HIV symptoms mirror so many other viral infections or can be explained by other things, we do not go by symptoms here at AIDS Vancouver.

I hope I was able to answer your question, and feel free to contact us with any further concerns.

Regards,

Sierra, Helpline Volunteer
