MSM oral sex and CONFUSSION

1. I wanna say this forum claim Oral sex is safe sex.However, 99% doctors in United States and 99% Experts in United States say they have seen convinsing cases and well-documented cases through HIV.
2. They say  I will get infected by Oral sex because I swallow seman and contain them in my mouth
   HIV virus will get into my body through a small membranes cut .
   and the risk is  1:2500 or 1:10000 or 100people/per year

Because I am sick ,  have extremely simular ARS symptom( Fever ranging from 37.5-38 for 2-3weeks)
,and say other experts say risk is high not low and extremely low!

Could anyone help me? idk what to do!!

Oral sex does not transmit HIV.

No incident HIV infections among MSM who practice exclusively oral sex.

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".

"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

"HIV is not spread by touching, masturbation, oral sex or condom protected sex."- DR. HOOK

in the public HIV Prevention forum of MedHelp, TEAK and the other moderators maintain that oral sex in all forms is a zero risk activity. Would you agree with this assessment?

"The observation on thousands and thousands of observations is that HIV is not spread by oral sex (of any sort)." DR HOOK

I have read the sites before" God save me from death", you ave been asked to provide a single case of HIV being transmitted via oral sex, why are you waiting ?

There is nothing in your links that provide a single case study. Stop copying and pasting, offer up your case study.

When as HIV ever been transmitted via oral sex ?

I visit many HIV forums and sites and see all the time what you have posted, I have yet to see a single person offer up a single confirmed case of HIV being transmitted via oral sex. Since you have taken the time and searched the net exhaustively , maybe you can offer up here a case study that confirms HIV can be transmitted via oral sex.

Just one will do.

Please, you help me out here.
