up till now this is the only form of sex i have ever had , tell me is there ay chace of getting hiv ,has anyone ever got hiv from receiving oralsex , and sorry about your bro who died of smoking ,

Response from Dr. Frascino


Unprotected insertive oral sex carries only a very low HIV-acquisition risk. Your blowjob was brief, 30 to 40 seconds.

If you are worried, get a single HIV-antibody test. Rapid tests provide definitive answers in just a few short minutes. The odds are astronomically in your favor that you did not contract HIV from this brief oral adventure five years ago.

Thanks for your condolences regarding my brother.

Be well. Stay well. Noel.
