What I've read is there's not a single case reported of getting infected by receptive oral sex



Sherezade, I guess you wanted to say there are no reported cases of getting infected through INSERTIVE oral case, like in the situation of Buzz1. However, there are cases of people geting infected through RECEPTIVE oral sex (the person who does the sucking)

In the case of Buzz1, if there was evident blood of the partner present in his penis, this could be a route for infection. The case is still very unusual. Buzz1 didn't specify if he performed oral on his partner as well (receptive oral). This could also be a route for infection.

@Buzz1:

Have you talked to this partner to confirm if he is indeed Positive? That would be the only way to confirm if the infection came from this exposure.

Have you had any other type of sexual activity between May-August? There's a window period of 3 months so the Negative test you had mid July covers only the period from mid April to mid July provided you didn't have any unprotected exposures during that time.

All the best.
