I am concerned about the possibility of contracting HIV through oral sex. I am a gay man and yesterday I gave another guy a blow job. I don't know weather he is HIV positive, although he assures me he isn't. I gave him a blow job on 3 different occasions - each one of those were pretty brief, probably less than 1 min. I wear braces, so I was trying to be gentle and I don't think I could have scratched him so much that blood was involved. Also, I didn't notice he had precum and later he also told me he never has precum, but I guess a small amount could have been on his penis. I also didn't notice I had wounds or cuts on or inside my mouth, maybe just some small ones I couldn't notice. He didn't cum inside my mouth! I read on some forums that both performing and receiving oral sex represents a risk for HIV transmission and I got very scared. Maybe I am worried more than I should be, but I just can't calm down. Can you tell me what are the odds for contracting HIV this way? Thanks a lot!

Thanks for your question,
We recommend that all sexually active people get tested for HIV/STDs on a regular basis, so that's what we'd recommend for you.
Hope this helps,
