Teak already answered this on the hiv prevention forum.
yes indeed hsv2 does increase your risk of contracting hiv from a hiv+ partner but the odds that you would contract hiv from receiving oral sex are far too low to even think twice about especially if you aren't in a long term relationship with someone who has hiv.
Hi Grace! Thank you for the reassurance. Even though the guy I was with literally only had my penis in his mouth for a maximum of five seconds, I'm still petrified. So do you really think I have nothing to worry about? This will be my final question. I just want to finally be able to sleep without any worries. Thank you!
