I am a Male and I recently received unprotected oral from a Female sexual worker, I know it was a really stupid thing to do and I completely regret it.
This was two weeks ago, tomorrow i will be going for a chlamydia and gonorrhea test, I know there is some risk of Syphilis as well as the other two mentioned.
What I would like to know is, as I saw no visible signs of syphilis chancres around her mouth, would I be a great risk?
I mean does my penis need to actually touch the chancre to contract syphilis?
I would greatly appreciate some advice? As I keep seeing mixed information on the web.
Unprotected oral is low risk for std transmission. It is great that you plan to get checked out tomorrow but it really is not warranted from an exposure such as oral sex unless symptoms had appeared. However, we do not mean for the individual not to get tested unless he or she really wants to. Yes, it is true that in order to contract syphilis you need to come into contact with a chancre but, even without one, by chance, you could contract it. But the good news is that syphilis is rare amongst people in developed countries such as the US and most female sex workers do not have stds. They are often checked out for not only their benefit but for their client's benefit. If you are going to get tested for syphilis, you might need to hold it off for another two or four weeks for better results. It is okay to get tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia now.
Thank you Aelly thats brilliant, I'm from the UK so thats cool.
Do you know hoe long it usually takes for symptoms of syphilis to appear, this was 14 days ago and i've not really seen anything as of yet.
The UK has fabulous medical clinics in London, especially in Harley street. Syphilis usually takes about 10-90 days for symptoms to appear, that is, if symptoms actually do appear. But, it is safe to test four to six weeks post exposure for absolute and complete results to come through. Symptoms for syphilis can be imitating and symptoms can be usually something else. There has been instances in which people manage to bypass primary syphilis through asymptomatic process but I cannot be certain. But, I do not think you have anything to worry about from this exposure, especially, from oral sex. Here is another thing: Oral syphilis is highly rare so if she did have it, I think she would have known something strange about it in her mouth. The likelihood of you having syphilis is quite tiny, particularly in reception of oral sex.
