Oral sex; should I get tested

Jan 17, 2012

Hello, on December 14, 2011, I received unprotected oral sex from a guy that I barely met that night. I did not perform oral sex. We also engaged in French kissing. later that night, after brushing my teeth I noticed I had a cut on my gum near my molar. I did not see or taste any blood while kissing. I am very worried that I might have contacted HIV. Did my actions put me at risk of HIV? I am really worried. Also, about 4 weeks post "exposure" I have been having spouts of diarrhea. Please help me by answering my questions. Thank you!

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Any risk from a situation like this would be negligible. Unless he was bleeding profusely from the mouth, I would not be concerned in the slightest.

In health,
