first the bad news. yes, there is definitely a possibility that he is positive. HIV is not about symptoms or how you feel. unless he has tested negative three months after his last sexual encounter, his status remains unknown.

but here's the good news. even if he is positive, oral sex is a very, very low risk. the HIV risk of receptive oral sex (meaning you are the giver), the cdc estimates as 1 out of 10,000 exposures.

so the odds are extremely stacked in your favor. what's done is done. a test at 3 months will be conclusive. assuming you didn't have any other encounters, the test will most likely come back negative.
