Testing question...
Sep 30, 2007

Good evening doctor. I'm a married man an exercised poor judgement. A sex worker licked and sucked my nipple for 30-40 seconds. My nipple skin was/is intact. I saw no blood. She didn't bite me or break the skin. I'm wracked with guilt and despair. Please advise. Do I need Hiv testing for this encounter? Thank you.

Response from Dr. McGovern

No you do not. I am not concerned about this encounter. In general, please refer HIV related questions to the HIV forum.

Chronic or acute?
Hep B Clearance? Confused
