doc: was given unprotected oral sex (i am male) by a prostitute. got tested after 93 days (PCR qualitative and elisa antibody test)both were negative but i have stomach pain from last 15 days .should i need to get retest? also heard that other stds get transffered thru oral sex should i need tovget tested for other stds like gonnhoria or siphilis. if yes what test is available for stds

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The risk of HIV transmission with oral sex is extremely low. It is even reasonable to state that for the person receiving oral sex (that is on whom oral sex is being performed) the risk of acquisition of the virus is practically zero. For the person placing his or her mouth on someone else's genitals, the risk may be slightly higher but still very very low.

With that being said and your test coming back negative at 93 days it is not HIV. You are correct in that other sexually transmitted infections can be transmitted orally. Follow up with your health care provider for this testing is what I would recommend.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
