Hello,


Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of HIV transmission after receiving protected oral sex and performing manual stimulation on your partner. 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 transmission equation. It does not satisfy the equation because there is no direct access of bodily fluids to your bloodstream.Helpline Transmission Equation .jpgIf a person living with HIV is taking effective antiretroviral therapy the amount of HIV virus in their body, known as HIV viral load, will likely be so low that it is undetectable by HIV tests. It is important to note that someone with an undetectable HIV viral load is not able to transmit the HIV virus (1). Although the scenario mentioned above does not warrant HIV testing, it is always a good idea to access regular HIV and other STI testing at least once a year. To further mitigate any risk in the future, especially if you decide to engage in higher risk behaviours, there are biomedical approaches such as PrEP and PEP that help lower your risk of acquiring HIV.

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