Also I am little confused with the riskchecker.channel4.com result of medium risk of STDs.
I thought I would be zero-low risk of STDs. :(
I'm guessing its just calculating current risk. I did one today and it put me at 0% chance of anything. I got oral from a hooker and have been scared for the last 3 months about HIV so hopefully the risk calculator is a genie in a boc
Would you believe the result from first calculator? 100% free from STDs
Honestly don't know what to believe. Everyone here says u can't get HIV from oral. In fact I got a warning from the site to stop asking about HIV from oral because its a zero risk situation so idk
I am confused too as all the revelant health bodies say different things regarding sexual health. I think they just say you are at risk to scare you into getting tested. As well I always thought oral sex was considered safe sex.
A 10% risk for STD would be considered very high. Therefore, even people at highest STD risk usually aren't infected. In other words, high risk on a "calculator" and negative test results doesn't necessarily mean the calculator is wrong.
There is no doubt about oral sex and low HIV risk. A few cases have occurred by fellatio, penis to oral. I bellieve it it still true that no cases have ever been proved for oral to penis, or for cunnilingus (vaginal-oral) in either direction.
Most STD experts recommend against STD testing on account of any single episode of oral sex. Sounds like your first calculator has it right.
There's no formal definition of either "high" or "low" risk.
