hiv or STD

Feb 21, 2012

i had an unprotected oral sex with one girl yesterday, after the oral sex i saw some blood including with semen , i dont know where the blood coming , but the girl say not from her month , after i checked apparently i found some broken skin area in my penis , now i afraid about hiv, if i do ART therapy with in 72 hours that will reduce the risk??, and how much percentage chance of HIV or STD?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Yes, if you started PEP within 72 hours it would be effective. However, I do not think this risk warrants the use of PEP. Even with the broken skin, oral sex has been and remains a low-risk activity. The likelihood of transmission in a situation like this is extremely low.

In health,


Recieved Oral and worried sick
