Std enquiry

Hi, I’m a 27 yr old gay guy.
Yesterday was my second exp of getting a blowjob, where the first one was just a bjob and kissing.
This time, it was a diff person and it started with deep kissing, followed by me receiving the blowjob and I masturbated him till he cummed. I then sucked his nipples and he blowed me again, and deepthroated me until I cummed in his throat.

I’m a little worried with the risk of STDs due to the deepthroat issue , followed by the the risk of his cum touching my penis ( maybe a drop).

Should I be worried for the risk? And when should I test myself, what’s the ideal window period, tq.

There is no risk from kissing, sucking nipples or mutual masturbation. His semen touching your penis isn't a risk unless it enters your urethra, and a drop isn't going to do anything.

So receiving unprotected oral sex puts you at risk for syphilis, genital herpes type 1, chlamydia, gonorrhea and NGU. You are not at risk for HIV from receiving (or giving) oral sex.

I’ll explain all the risks for everything, but most experts don't think a single act of oral sex warrants testing. If you have a regular partner you're concerned about infecting, you might want to test, but you probably don't need to test unless you get symptoms.


Syphilis isn't that common, and your partner would have had to have a sore in their mouth to transmit it. You wouldn't see symptoms of this for 10-90 days, but the average is 21 days, and you'd get a sore called a chancre. This doesn't cause burning, pain, discharge, etc. You can test for this at 6 weeks. If you get symptoms, but test negative at 6 weeks, test again at 90 days, and get to the doctor as soon as you see symptoms.

Herpes Simplex Type 1:

If you don't already have herpes type 1 (think oral sores, like cold sores but not canker sores), then you could get genital herpes type 1 from receiving oral sex. This can happen even if the person performing oral doesn't have a sore, but it's more likely if they do. The time from infection to symptoms is usually 2-12 days, but the average is 4 days. You can test for this now, and then again at 4 months to make sure you don't have it. If you test positive now, it's a pre-existing infection that you had before this encounter. About half the adult population has this, and 90% don’t know it. Ask for a type specific hsv1 IgG blood test. You don't need a type 2 test, and that test has some false positives on it, so avoid it if you can.  


You'd see symptoms of gonorrhea at about 2-5 days, and this would usually be a discharge, burning, etc. Some people don't get symptoms. You can test for this as early as 3 days, but 5 days is better. You can have a urine test or a swab test.


Oral chlamydia isn't common at all, so getting chlamydia from receiving oral isn't likely, but has happened, so I mention it. The symptoms and time frame are similar to gonorrhea. A chlamydia test is usually run at the same time as gonorrhea, but make sure to ask for it.


NGU (nongonococcal urethritis urethritis, sometimes called NSU, for non-specific) is an infection in the urethra that is caused by anything other than gonorrhea . This can be caused by normal mouth bacteria entering the urethra, and other germs, like strep, adenovirus (usually causes upper respiratory infections like bronchitis), and the like. The symptoms and testing times are the same as gonorrhea and chlamydia.  

Again, most experts don't think a single act warrants testing. If it helps your peace of mind to test, then test, but there's no need to panic.

Tq for your explanation. I forgot to tell another thing that I did. When he filled after I masturbated him, I touched his lips with  some traces of his semen on my hand.

After that, he began to deepthroat me. Does this act increases the risk of hiv or other STDs as well?
*when he cummed after I masturbated him
It doesn't change anything. Really, the what ifs with fine little details won't change anything.

You can test to put your mind at ease, but there is going to be a waiting period. There's no need to panic here, though.

You can test for gonorrhea, chlamydia and NGU at 5 days, syphilis at 6 weeks, and if you don't already have it, hsv1 at 12 weeks. That's all you are at risk for, and the risks aren't high.
Thank you for replying. I’ve been panicking for the past 3 days thinking about this. Your words have calmed me, and I’ll test for the STDs that you’ve mentioned if I have any symptoms . You’re a gem.

As such, can I also ask your advice , for a gay guy like me who has closeted myself from sex for years due to its risks and the fact that my current residing country is totally against lgbtq. How am I suppose to have sex safely , despite all the risks for oral and more?

Thank you.
I'm sorry you live in a place like that. I can't imagine how that must be. :(

Risks with oral are much lower than penetrative sex, but a lot of people - no matter the sexuality - use condoms for oral. Obviously, that's not the same experience as no condom, but it's something that could help. Most experts don't think one encounter of oral sex warrants testing, though - it's really not that high of a risk.

Ask your partners about testing. Even if your country is against LGBTQ, people can still test. You don't have to tell your doctors about who your partners are to get tested.
