Worth getting a test?
      #172928 - 02/02/06 09:19 AM

Hi I recently gave oral sex to man. It was for a brief period of time maybe a minute or so and then when he told me he was going to ejaculate, I stopped so none got in my mouth. He then masturbated me using some of his own ejaculate as lube. I asked him and he claims he is clean. Is it worth getting an HIV test?

In my opinion, as long as you are uncomfortable, do the test. According to people in the forum, do a 13 week test and if it negative, it is considered conclusive.

Probably not. It depends on whether you partner was part of a high risk group (are you MSM?) and as to whether your mouth was healthy. Still, transmission is unlikely, since there was no ejaculation and there are only small concentrations of HIV in pre-cum, if there was any. There are very few cases of HIV transmission via oral sex & it is considered a low risk activity.

Still, it is good for all sexually active people (with more than one negative partner) to get tested regularly. Wait three months and have an STD panel done. Based on this exposure, you should be fine with regards to HIV.

No, If everyone tested at a free clinic for a B/J the sytem would be broke. If like the other poster said you are having multible sex patners then by all means teat. But for this you risk is nil regurdless of what they say.

the option of testing is yours, a brief low low risk encounter that you had would not justify a test unless it was going to pray on your mind.love and peace

hi

regards from india

Your risk was quite LOW, i doubt testing is warrented. However various STD's other than HIV can be transmitted through this route.

Goodluck

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well
