Healing mouth ulcer with no blood opening

Dec 11, 2012

Hi I gave oral sex a couple of days ago with a closed healing mouth ulcer should I be worried about HIV there was a little bit of pre cum

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

If the ulcer was healing that transmission would be unlikely. HIV needs direct access to the bloodstream for transmission to occur. I do not think you need to be tested for this incident in particular. You can wait until your regularly schedule 6-month, or annual round of STD screenings, including HIV.

In health,


Am I infected ?
My testing result
