If I do anti gine and anti body combi Test like Elisa 4th generation and count after 2 weeks of this Exposure how reliable the results will be Thanks

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. Theoretically, obvious cuts, wounds, sores, or infections in the mouth could raise this risk. But relatively speaking this is still considered to be a low-risk sexual activity as the mouth is not a hospitable place for the HIV virus. Please note that other sexually transmitted infections are readily spread via oral contact and you may need to be checked for these. This is with or without a condom. The other thing to remember is the risk of other sexually transmitted infections. If you experience any symptoms I would recommend you following up with your healthcare provider for evaluation.

But from your experience the risk of HIV transmission is incredibly low to no risk.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
