heterosexual oral sex risks?
      #163197 - 11/02/05 10:58 PM

I gave oral sex to a man who has told and reassured me multiple times that he is clean. He also did not ejaculate in my mouth. I also recieved oral sex from him. I am curious about my risks of infection. A lot of websites say oral sex is high risk, but this one says its low. It's already been one month, but I don't know how I'm going to make it another two. Please help.

Sorry I didn't know what that word meant. I guess that means very little risk. Should I get tested anyway?

No real need. Unless you had open sores in your mouth with puss and blood etc. coming from them then you have nothing to worry about and even then it would be a low low low risk.

Gman has said it before, oral sex only carries a theoretical risk.

The NIH makes guesstimiates for various risk factors in considering whether PEP should be initiated.
You can do a google search for it or on the body.

The rough ESTIMATE for oral sex is roughly on the order of 1 in 10,000 assuming that there is no visible blood, open sores etc. Very low risk, but not no risk. Get tested for peace of mind, but you should be fine. Use a condom or dental dam next time.
