protected oral sex

Aug 15, 2013

3 years ago i had protected oral sex with a prostitute in Prague. She suminiatered the condom. Do I need to get tested?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

I am not sure what "suminiatered " means and neither does Google. However, I can tell you that oral sex is a low-risk activity. Using a condom lowers the risk even more.

I do not think you need to test for this incident in particular. However, anyone who is sexually active should be tested for HIV and all other STD's at least once a year, and preferably every six months.

Based on your question I am assuming that it has been at least three years since your last HIV test. You're way overdue for a full round of testing if that's the case.

In health,
