risks of HIV with oral sex/ cunnilingus
Feb 24, 2006

Doctor ,

I am male and had oral sex or cunnilingus with my former girlfriend last January 16, 2006 . I had a tiny sore on my lower lip so I gargled before I went down on her. I also just licked her on the clitoris and did not go down on her vagina area . Thinking that there could be a possible risks of contracting HIV (we only had oral sex) I asked that she be checked for HIV on February 10, 2006 ( around 4 weeks after ) and I myself checked on February 22, 2006 ( around 6 weeks after ) and both tests came back negative . What are still my risks doctor ? am worried

Response from Dr. Conway

Unless you have reason to believe that she had just recently acquired HIV infection prior to your contact with her, then she is not infected with HIV. There is therefore no risk of HIV transmission fron the contact, although you may have to be concerned about other sexual infections, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis.
