unprotected bleeding oral sex
May 22, 2006
Hi Dr Bob,
I had unprotected oral sex with a prostitute(HIV status unknown) and I had a foreskin tear which led to me bleeding in her mouth ....
I immediately rushed to the hospital and got the wound clean up with antibiotics and after that a circumcision operation ...
My question is what are the chances of me getting infected with AIDS ...??
Thank you ...
Response from Dr. Frascino
One would think from this scenario that it would be the Hoover-hooker who was dashing to the hospital concerned about HIV. Oh well, who knows? Maybe she did.
Your overall HIV risk remains remarkably low; however, particularly because of the foreskin trauma and active bleeding, I would recommend an ELISA test at the three-month mark.
