HSV2 & HIV

I have HSV2 and I received oral sex for about 5 seconds. Does this increase my risk to contract HIV? I am so paranoid. I've been told no but I'm still worried. Can someone please help me?

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.

don't drive yourself nuts needlessly!!!!

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!

Teak said that there is no risk and you are saying that there is a risk. I'm confused and scared. Please help. I'm scared and paranoid. Please help me.
