Please Help I am very worried

Mar 12, 2012


Please help me with the incident. I gave head to a guy a without condom almost two weeks ago, actually, I deep throated him. It was my first time deep throating. I did it once and it hurt so I stopped. I just gave him regular head afterwards for 2-3 minutes. Later I found a little bit of blood in my spit (probably hurt throat ). There was no ejaculation. I do not know if he pre-cum or not for sure, but I do not think so. There was no anal penetration involved. I don't know his status. I am worried. What are my chances of catching HIV? Please Help ME!

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Oral sex has been and remains a low-risk activity, even given the circumstances you described. In the future, I would be a little more cautious when performing oral sex. Only take his penis into your mouth as deep as it will comfortably go. Do not force it. You do not need to test for this incident in particular, you can wait until your regularly scheduled six month or annual test.

In health,
