The possibility of receiving HIV through oral sex?
I am very anxious and worried at the moment as just over 2 weeks ago a sex worker gave me oral sex for just over 10 seconds before I panicked and asked her to stop. I have been reading many forums and websites and realise that HIV can be transmitted through Oral Sex through cuts or sores in her mouth or lips. I did not notice any blood on my penis as I pulled out or on her lips. What is the possibility that i may be infected? I have also recently got a a rash on my helmet and went to see a doctor who said that it may be herpes. I have read that having stds (i didnt before the encounter) increases the chance of HIV transmission. If anyone could please give me some advice or help with some knowledge i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
Thank you teak that has put my mind at rest a little. Does there have to be a substatntial amount of blood then for HIV to be contracted as i have been reading that it can be transfereed through the smallest cut or sore which i could obviously not have noticed. I have also read that saliva destroys the HIV virus so would that also mean if there was a tiny amount of blood in her mouth that her saliva would naturally detsroy the HIV in it anyway?
Yup, you're not at risk from receiving oral sex - think about how many people get head in their regular lives, and no-one has been recorded with receiving HIV from a *******. You will not be the first.
Also, quit googling. Take a moment to think how many people out there want people to be afraid of sex. The religious right, homophobes, etc. Some of these sites are fear-mongering at their finest.
