HIV contraction

Jan 3, 2013

I recently had a sexual encounter with someone, who is said to be infection-free. On the off-chance he doesn't know that he has contracted something, what are the chances of him passing along something to me?

He has performed oral sex on me (I have NOT performed oral sex on him). And we have touched penises together with precum on them.

Should I be worried?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission and touching penis's carries a very low risk at all. There are other risk to be concerned about, the other sexually transmitted infections. But as for HIV risk the interaction you had carries a very low risk of transmission.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
