Protected Anal


I had insertive protected anal with a guy, the condom did not break.

I also gave him and also got unprotected oral sex. I had his penis in my mouth for a little bit and could taste pre seminal fluid. He ejaculated much later outside my mouth. I also had inflamed gums and a canker sore maybe.

Are any of these risks? I read on a website that protected anal and oral are both low risks and they recommend testing, but it felt scripted and I don’t see how protected anal can be a risk if the condom was intact. Not so sure about the oral, but something about saliva?

The only adult risks for HIV are:
1) Having unprotected penetrative anal or vaginal sex, OR
2) Sharing IV drug equipment with other IV drug users.

The reason protected penetration is listed as "low risk" is due to the fact that the condom could break.  However, if you use a condom and it does not VISIBLY break, you are not at risk for HIV.  
Oral sex is not a concern - ingesting fluid of any kind isn't a risk for HIV, and in your mouth, saliva has properties that inhibit the virus.  There's no need to test since you were never exposed to HIV.

Thank you,

The condom definitely did not break for anal. plus he ejaculated outside anyways.

I don’t know if I mentioned, but the oral I gave was unprotected and I did not use condoms for oral. So his bare penis was in my mouth. Still makes no difference right?
No difference at all.  Oral is not on the list of the two risks I gave you for HIV :)
