Canker sore oral sex on HIV positive woman how big of a risk?

Dec 16, 2011

I stupidly did this the other week and I've had bad diarrhea with blood for 2.5 weeks now achey muscles, fatigue and I've also lost 3-5lbs. Ive also had a rash some weird feeling in my neck 4 and 3 weeks ago as well as a bit of a weird feeling around the back of my ear area. Is this s significant risk?

I've been tested a month after I was first with my GF. How accurate are tests around this time?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Thanks for writing in. Having the canker sore would have increased the risk, but since oral sex remains low risk, I would not be to concerned. I would recommend a test at 90 days, just to be safe.

In health, Richard

One more time please... I know I'm rare case!
Please help. Had unprotected sex
