testing is necessary?

May 30, 2013

Hellow doctor,I am a 25 year old male, recently I received oral sex from a woman but there was no anal and vaginal sex then that was the first sexuel experience in my life do do I need testing for hiv?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

I do not think that instances of oral sex require testing. However, you should be tested for all STD's, including HIV at least once a year, and preferably every six months.

In health,
