oral sex

Nov 21, 2012

hi i am 29 i had done a stupid thing in my life, had oral sex from sex worker 8 weeks before in Ethiopia, i am freaking out totally Dr., i have seen little Behind knee swelling on both side of my leg, every-time i wake up i always check my body whether there is a lump or not. i can't sleep totally disparate and worried please advise me. Thank you.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Oral sex is low-risk, and swelling behind the knee has nothing to do with HIV. I do not think you need to be tested for this incident in particular. However, if you like, you can certainly test at the 90 day mark for your peace of mind. Rest easy. This was not a high-risk incident.

In health,


Im afraid out of my mind!!!!
