Oral On Sex worker
      #65830 - 06/17/03 11:17 PM

I had protected sex with a sex worker, but I was dumb enough to give the girl oral for a couple minutes. I am freaking out big time. I have read that the chances of catching HIV via oral on a female is low, but I did have a couple oral cuts at the time I did this. Does that turn my situation to high risk? Anybody know anything about the odds of being infected by oral sex?

Thanks a million for any thoughts you may have.

Go read the post titled, "This may be of some help to all the worried wells". It's actually a good post and quite informative. I was worried about oral sex too, but according to that post, saliva kills the HIV virus. That was something I didn't know. The odds of being infected by oral sex are quite low. (if existant period). As far as I know, transmission through oral sex is only a theoretical risk. It's never been proven. The cuts you had orally had to have been fresh and open as far as I know. I still intend on getting tested, but I'm not nearly as worried now. You sound like you're going to be just fine to me. Don't sweat it!
