HPV and oral sex

Hello, i would like to know what are the chances of being infected with HPV for perfoming fellatio. I'm a virgin and this is the first and only time I've had oral (which happened exactly two weeks ago). I've been reading a lot of things online and they are making me worried. My doctor said everything was ok but i'm still kinda paranoid. I wanted to know what are the chances of getting oral HPV and if this would cause me cancer? and i'd also like to know when can i get tested for it (as in, how long should i wait for get a test) thank you so much in advance.

Hi, HPV would not be a concern with receiving oral sex If your female, some strains can cause cancer but that would be more from penitrative sex where the penis makes contact with your cervix.

Low risk esp when there is no warts at the time

So you have to have unprotected sex and tpuch the infected cervix to get high risk hpv, this is the std no one can explain to me in this website im having a really hard time with this. I have protected sex with a woman with unknown status i got over the rest of the stds but hpv i cnt test for that so i want clarification or some little explainig to feel better. Idk if this woman had any hov the only thing i noticed inside the condmon was blood idk if it was blood from high infected hpv in cervix can that blood be comtagious? Or it has to be penis to cervix contact to get high risk hpv please someone help me out on this. Its all i ask for.

The strains that produce warts and those that produce cancer are different.  The HPV strains that cause warts typically do not lead to cancer.  Oral sex, both way is thought to be a reason for the increase in HPV related oral/throat cancers.  The good news is that most (90 percent) resolve in 2 years.  It also should be noted that most people will be infected with a strain of HPV, including the so called high risk but very few end up leading to cancer.
