I received oral sex from a woman who tested HIV negative at the end of spring. I was so scared that it did not last long and I did not see in sores around or in her mouth. I am so paranoid that I received HIV. I went and got a HIV antibody test after 6 weeks and it showed HIV was not in my blood stream yet. How reliable is a 6 week test? By the way, I did not perform any sexual intercourse with her either. This was a one time deal and I have not been with her again.

Response from Mr. Kull

Questions very similar to yours have been answered recently. Read through Did I test for nothing?, Are there any reported cases of getting HIV through receiving oral sex?, and Testing window for some examples.


Oral Sex
High risk?
