You should not need any further testing, because contracting HIV from oral sex is very low risk. Being that you were the reciever that puts you at an even lower risk.I would not get any further testing, but if it helps you feel better go ahead.It most likely will come back negative
Thanks for your comment, i am confused as i read too many information from the web.
even the doctors and experts have different comment on the test window period. i really can't get rid of it and need some comforts from people...
i am afraid i can't take care of my wife....
No risk as far as HIV is concerned. I wouldnt do further tests.
oral sex does NOT transmit hiv...period ! ! !
Yes it can, but it is so low risk that people don't find it a concern. If someone is giving and they happen to have a cut or any sores in their mouth and someone ejaculates in their mouth or even precum they can contract it. There have been cases where people have contracted HIV from oral sex but as said before those occasions. Paul you do not have to worry though. be careful in the future though
*are very rare(forgot to end my sentence)
Oral sex does not transmit HIV. Please stay in your own thread.
please do not be giving out incorrect information. obviously you are NOT educated in hiv transmission or you wouldnt be here with questions of your own.
there have been several studies done that PROVE...WITHOUT A DOUBT...that oral sex does NOT transmit hiv. there are NO verified cases of hiv being transmitted through oral sex only.
"And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Please educate yourself about the real risks. If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs. " DR. HANSFIELD
"I am sure you can find lots of people who belive that HIV is transmitted by oral sex, but you will not find scientific data to support this unrealistic concern..." Dr.Hook
stay in your own post.
thanks for all of your feedback~
Dr. Hook sometimes said oral is a ultra low risk, should i take this as a reference.
if it is a ultra low risk, should i wait for 3months for my re-test. i really can't sleep until i know i am safe and stay safe with my wife. i hate myself as i do something hurt her.
sorry i don't suppose not to trust both lizza and teak as you are great in these area, but i am quite confusing about the information re this and the testing window period time.
thanks again for all of your comment

Oral-penile sex carries risk of gonorrhea, nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), syphilis, and herpes due to HSV-1. But the risk is low even with prolonged exposure and near zero for the brief exposure you describe. And if you caught any of these, most likely you would develop obvious symptoms. If you don't develop penile sores or abnormal discharge in the 2 weeks following the exposure, don't worry about it. I do not recommend testing if you have no symptoms. There is no risk for HPV or chlamydia.
There is no debate (among experts) about the HIV risks associated with oral sex. The risk is so low that almost nobody who cares for HIV infected patients has ever had a patient believed to have been infected that way. Among experts, it's a semantic issue about using terms like "no risk" and "very low risk". There is no difference between my or Dr. Hook's use of "low risk" and other experts' "no risk".
If I were in your situation, knowing what I know, I would not be tested for HIV or any other STD, and I would continue unprotected sex with my wife. That should tell you how low the risk is -- even while admitting some theoretical risk. So please move on. This issue isn't worth the level of emotional energy you are putting into it.
Thanks for your further comment. It releases some of my pressure.
Teak, my doctor told me that my 49days - HIV combined test Ag/Ab - non-reactive is very reliable and more than 99% claimed that i won't catch HIV. Should I take this + your comment - Oral sex no risk and then move on...
I got sore throat, headache and dry coughing from 8wk to 9wk. it won't be the HIV symptons , right?
sorry i got questions again as i am going crazy and didn't sleep well last night.
You didn't need to test in the first place. You didn't have a risk.
Thanks for your comment and i would like to tell the people i got my test after 12wks and the result is negative.
just to give the people to read this forum a example to show Teak and Lizziu comment is correct and don't make yourself crazy after oral sex. it's not worth paying 100% worry on this, spending few hrs to seek information from the internet, etc... and should move on.
last, i hope all people to have good health and remember to have safe sex.
thanks for your comment before and keep doing your best thing in this forum, cheers
My circumstances are similar to Paul2paul
1. Male Hetro
2.Oral reciever about 36-38 days ago ( discretion- once of) and did not cum in her mouth
3. HIV test 32 Days negative
4. Sore throat started about on 31 day mark and still going but no probs swollowing etc
5. No fever, or other obvious signs of ARS ( aprt from stress related)
6. Have wife and need to decide my next course of action
terribly worried and would like advice
You were never at risk at contracting HIV. Your risk was other STDs.
based on my experience, trust Teak and Lizzie and they are expert in this area. My doctor also told me that the risk tends to ZERO when i go for the test. Have a STDs test to further make yourself relief.
Tell your wife about the incident and face the problem together, hoep this help~
Thanks for that. What STD could be relevant ( remeber I have no idea!). I have no probs/issues/sores with penis?
Escuse my ignorance
