|Having sex with negative rapid HIV test person
May 24, 2013
I had unprotected insertive felatio with a prostitute, there was blood in her mouth and now I'm worried...
If I have tested today and checks as negative, do I have nothing to worry about?
Or might she still be contatious because she contacted in the "Window" period?

Hello there- You are correct, even with rapid testing there is a still a window in which you could miss someone who is seroconverting and has acute HIV infection. While oral sex is not typically considered a high risk activity, if you saw active blood in the mouth of the woman performing it on you, the risk would indeed be higher. Hope that helps. Take care LHW
