Oral Sex

Feb 9, 2012

I recently had oral sex with a man. It only lasted a minute or two, and he did not ejaculate in my mouth. Should I be worried about this enough to get tested for HIV?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. If there were no openings or cuts on his penis and you didn't have any openings in your mouth the chances of transmission are small. If you feel the need for peace of mind, I would recommend getting tested.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
