[Question #5891] Risk of hiv from oral sex

18 months ago
Got my penis sucked by a parlour girl by putting polythene rapper on it., didn’t felt any direct contact from her oral cavity., I want to ask whether her saliva or blood from  her oral cavity  can enter my urethra and pose me at risk of hiv., if polythene rapper doesn’t make good coverage

Welcome back to the Forum.  I believe you may have been misinformed about the risks for HIV and other STIs associated with different sorts of sexual activity.  There is no known risk of acquiring HIV from receipt of oral sex, with or without a protective barrier such as a polyethylene sheet.  There has never been a proven case of HIV acquired through receipt of oral sex.  There is no reason for you to be concerned about HIV from this exposure and no need for testing.

HIV is transmitted in adults ONLY though direct, unprotected genital-genital or ano-genital exposure or from direct injection of infected material deep into tissue.  

If your receipt of oral sex was not successfully protected by the polythene barrier and if your partner happened to have oral gonorrhea, there is a small chance that you could have acquired gonorrhea through your exposure.  Most gonorrhea becomes symptomatic in the 3-5 days following exposure but if you would like to be absolutely sure you are not infected, a urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia will provide highly reliable results.

I hope this information is helpful to you .EWH

Then why 1 in 10,000 ratio given for oral sex

The 1 in 10,000 figure is the figure used by the CDC which tends to be conservative in their estimates.  As Dr. Handsfield and I have said repeatedly we are unaware of anyone who has ever been proven to have gotten HIV from receipt of oral sex from an infected person.  Just to provide you with some context, risk for being stuck by lightening is about the same.  EWH---
