Oral Surgery Increased Oral Sex & Kiss Exposure

Jan 20, 2009

Hi Dr Bob:

I hope you are doing well.

I won't sugar coat it but simply get to the stupid facts. Yesterday, I had a protected sexual encounter with a prostitute 1 week after have 2 wisdom teeth removed.

My concern is two fold. Number 1: Even though we didn't deep kiss, our tongues touched and I ran my tongue around her lips.

Secondly, I did go down on her and stimulated her clitoris for about 10-15 seconds. I did not insert my tongue into her.

Questions, what additional risk does each of the above pose and in your opinion how much more risk does my surgery pose at this point?

Until I can be tested the next 3 months are going to be very long and very stressful.

God Bless you and your organization.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Worried Sick,

Most wisdom teeth extractions are fairly well healed within one week. Your tongue touching and brief clitoral stimulation would not pose significant HIV-acquisition risks. I'm very confident your three-month definitive HIV test will be negative.

Good luck. Be well. Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Is PEP recommended?
