[Question #284] Following up on cleity

35 months ago
I want to make sure I was clear on my last post that I went down on her for a minute and she went down on me .. I know dr hhh explained clearly to me no risk from oral to penile but I want to make sure since I did oral on her the risk assessment is just the same as hiv is concerned

Following up on clarity is what my post was suppost to read. But I hope you can find my last post we discussed and just tell me if my post was clear and I wrote it in a way that you knew what I meant by oral both ways between me and a woman . I went down on her and she went down on me unprotected . I read everywhere that it's safe oral to penile but I can't find nowhere it's safe for me to have went down on her.. Unless I am badly overlooking the post and not understanding.. I just want to move on and put behind me please help me to do so. My wife and kids need me back mentally..

Well that didn't last long. You previously expressed thanks and seemed to have gained confidence you could not have caugth HIV. And I already answered this exact question. And yes, I read all your previous questions carefully and answered them including the new question asked again now in different words.

My preivous replies included "Your exposure -- cunnilingus (oral-vaginal) -- has never been documented to have transmitted HIV in either direction" and "There are no proved cases of oral to penile HIV transmission. One estimate from CDC was that if it occurs, the risk is in the range of once for every 20,000 exposures." The last discussion went on to conclude that the chance you caught HIV was no higher than 1 chance in 20 million, which is equivalent to zero.

I don't know how I could be clearer than that. And although we normally leave threads open for follow-up questions, I will not answer any more questions that repeat the same things you have already asked. If you somehow remain concerned, first please go back and re-read this reply and your other ones very carefully word for word.

Really, mellow out. You are obviously distraught over a sexual decision you regret. But don't confuse that aspect with disease risks from the decision. They aren't the same. Deal with the emotional aspects as you need to, but forget the medical issues. There are no medical risks you need to be concerned about.

Best wishes--  HHH, MD
