what are my risk mr cordova please I beg you to tell me details about my incident.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Using a condom for each and every act of penetrative sex, is the best way to protect yourself against HIV and many STD's. Oral sex is a low-risk activity. Your risk was HIV was very low in this situation, I would not be concerned.

You should be aware that when you are experiencing a Herpes outbreak i.e. cold sore or fever blister, it is much easier for you to spread the virus to your partner and you should avoid sexual contact when you are experiencing an outbreak. I hope this helps.

In health,


HIV unprotected oral and deep kissing
please help me out in clearing my doubt of having HIV
