I think I tested early

Feb 4, 2012

Hello, I tested 39 days post possible exposure. I was negative. My "exposure" was that I received unprotected oral sex and I engaged in french kissing, not knowing until later that I had a cut on my gum. Not sure if this was even a risk. Was I at risk? Do I make a mistake and tested to early? Just want to make sure that I protect the person that I'm with. Im really worried. Thank you!

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Oral sex has been and remains a low-risk activity. I do not think you need to test for this incident. If you are going to test, only three months or later can be considered conclusive.

In health,


Sex going on before condom usage
