I've been worried........ i am gay and met this guy last tuesday. we kissed and i performed oral sex on him, that's all we did, no anal sex or other stuff. he was not hard and didn't ejaculate in my mouth either. and i didn't think he had sores on his penis.
i know nothing about him. and these days i started to worry about the hiv and other stds. i want to ask if i could get hiv or other stds like syphilis from that. what are the chances and if i need to take some test.
You could get oral gonorrhea or syphilis from this, but the chances aren't all that high.
If you feel you want to test, then get a throat swab at about 5 days after exposure, and make sure to tell the doctor you want a gonorrhea test, otherwise they might not order the correct test. You can test for syphilis at 6 weeks.
if i didn't find sore or other symptom on his penis, does that mean he didn't have syphilis? and i also noticed that Dr.Handsfield once said that syphilis can't be transmitted until at least 3 weeks after infection and can be transmitted within 1 year. do you agree that?
and what are the chances of getting hiv from that?
sincere thank you for your time in answering my questions!!
