Mouth ulcer and hiv risk

Nov 25, 2011

Hi! I recently performed oral sex to a guy, his hiv status unknown, his penis had precum and i had a bit of an ulcer on my lip. I felt his penis rub against the mouth ulcer felt a bit pain but did not notice any bleeding. Knowing that saliva could neutralize hiv, I tried lubricating his penis with my saliva while it was in my mouth. I have been worried i might have got the virus, do i need to get tested? Am i at risk? What do i need to do? Thanks id appreciate your answer.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

I would not be concerned and do not think this incident warrants testing.

In health, Richard
