Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you. That being said knowing that you had unprotected oral sex, this carries the lowest risk of transmission and then protected anal sex then the possibility of HIV transmission is very small.

Be well and stay safe,Shannon
