regards from india

Unlikely you are HIV infected.Protected sex is considered safe, assuming the condom did not break.Whereas oral sex is considered negligible risk.

However, other STD's can be transmitted through oral sex.


Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi

This is the only way it could happen. HIV has to find a path to your blood stream to infect you, if you think that her bodily fluids ran down your throut into where ever it goes and found a path to your blood stream then you should test at 3 months.

Pinkys honest opinon is..... not happening, no way, no how.

More than likely you are not infected from this encounter. As Ravi said oral sex is a relatively small risk. Albeit a risk but it is very small. HIV may not be readily transmitted via oral sex but other STDs can be. You may want to visit your MD and have a test for syphilis and/or gonorrhea. Both can cause swollen lymph glands and would have the onset in days like before. Luckily these diseases can be treated and cured with a round of antibiotics, but you need to get in and see your doc as soon as you can. If you do not have a regular doctor or would prefer to be a little more discreet, there are usually clinics in most major cities that can test confidentially.
