[Question #4171] Back again “cunnilingus with wisdom tooth extraction

31 months ago
Dear Doctor..

Sorry for bothering you again.. 
Last question.. can I have unprotected sex with my partner.. after my unprotected cunnilingus for 15 seconds? 
Or do I have to do the gonorrhea test first?

Welcome back to the forum, but I'm sorry you found it necessary. I reviewed your discussion with Dr. Hook and agree entirely with the reasoned, science based reassurance he gave you.

Because there is no significant risk of infection, there is no significant risk that you could infect your partner with something from that exposure. You cannot transmit an infection you don't have!

That said, your risk of STD was extremely low but maybe not quite zero. If somehow I were in your situation, I would continue unprotected sex with my wife without interruption, and without any worry I could infect her. And I would say you don't need testing for gonorrhea or any other STD. But I'm not you, and you'll have to make your own decision whether to wait for a negative gonorrhea test result.

Let me know if anything isn't clear.

Hello sir.. I am glad that two of the most famous doctors answered me.. by the way I am not married.. I am about to be in a relationship.. 

I thought it’s necessary to do the gonorrhea swab.. I am not going to do any tests if it’s not necessary.. I was very worried, but after the answer of doctor Hook, I stopped worrying and proceed without thinking of HIV test that I’ll never do.. 

Thanks the great doctor Handsfield..

From that I understand that there is no need to do any tests.. not the gonorrhea swab nor the HIV .. if yes I won’t do anything.. I trust you doctor..

It's not my or Dr. Hook's decision; it's yours. I suggest you re-read your previous thread, where the exposure was discussed in more detail, then decide.---

Of course.. but both of you said that, if you were in my place you wouldn’t do the test.. so there is no need especially for the HIV! 
1- So now do I need testing for HIV? 
2- Do I need testing for gonorrhea?

"Need" is relative. I cannot answer. How many times and in how many ways can I say it to make it sink in?

I will simply say that when someone is as anxious, insistent and uncertain as you are, testing usually is a good idea. It seems clear that you will continue to assume or fear you could be infected until you have had negative test results. Obviously this forum's reassurance isn't going to be sufficient. So probably you should be tested. This NOT because I recommend it, and NOT because there is any plausible risk. It is strictly for the benefit you can expect from knowing the negative result.

That ends this thread. Please do not post any more questions about this exposure, testing, etc.
