Dr. I had oral sex ( an exposition very soft and short time) , i have a negative test a 7 weeks after this exposition .
the question is:
Is the window period of six weeks  also valid for oral sex risk ?

this is not the doctor's forum...

your 7 week negative is conclusive for you...you were never at risk.  there has never been a documented case of someone contracting hiv from oral sex.  it just doesnt happen!

You should take the words from Liz because she is right . After almost three decades of HIV / AIDS discovery, tons of research has been  done on its tranmission, prevention and possible treatment ever since and all that information is available.

There has been no single case of HIV transmission to men or women via receptive oral sex. That's why this only considered to be a "theoretical risk" or a risk of just an academic value.There are however very few cases reported when performers of oral sex contracted HIV when ejaculation was involved.

Having said that, although it is a "zero" risk behavior as far as HIV tranmission is concerned, you are still at a risk of picking up other STD's via oral, including Herpes, which is also not curable as of today.

Thanks dear LIZZIE LOO. you were very kind by answer me, i also read this information taken by an answer of the dr Handsfield:

" To the best of my knowledge, nobody has ever been known to catch HIV by performing oral sex on a woman. If it happens, it is extremely rare, even with sores in the mouth. "

I feel more relaxed now, thanks to your comments, driver58 and dr Handsfield.
