Never had unprotected sex but...
      #164659 - 11/18/05 11:57 PM

Ive had oral sex performed on me and have given oral sex without any sort of barrier. i cant say ive never cum in anyone elses mouth, but I absolutely from day one have never let any man ejaculate in my mouth (maybe except for precum which, despite peculiar looks, ive always spit out.) and ive never swallowed. Im going to buy the home test this week, but Im always paranoid. I know the only way to know is to KNOW, but...whats your opinion of the risk factor in unprotected oral.

your risk is very very very low. I'm sure you will be fine. But, I'll keep you in my prayers this week just the same. I know it is scary....and hard to do...but once you test, you can put your mind at ease.

Various papers I have read estimate the risk of receptive oral sex (where you are the receiver) to be on the order of 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 5,000. There are documented cases of HIV transmission this way. And it's also possible to get gonorrhea of the throat this way.

I think you'll be fine. Using condoms would reduce the risk by at least a factor of 10,000 or more. Why take a chance with your life? Please use a condom in the future.

Good luck.
