[Question #6507] Received PROTECTED Oral

13 months ago
Hello Doctors,
Thank you for all your efforts.
6 days ago I received PROTECTED oral (fellatio) from escort for around 3 min. the condom was covered all of my penius  very well and I made sure it wasnt broken when I finish. and we had some closed mouth kisses (no deep kissing or open mouth). No symptoms of anything till now.
1- Any risk for getting HIV? or any other STDs? 
2- Do I need to do any test?
3- shall I complete my sexual life with my wife?
4- is zero risk same as no risk? 
5- I am very worried from getting HIV. Shall I calm down and complete my life without thinking of this?

Looking forward for your answers. Thank you in advance for your time and efforts.

Welcome to our Forum.  As long as the condom was on throughout the exposure you describe and did not break, you can be confident that your receipt of oral sex was a no risk event.  I would not worry and would not feel any need to test.  In answer to your specific questions:

1- Any risk for getting HIV? or any other STDs? 
No risk.

2- Do I need to do any test?
I see no medical reason for testing.

3- shall I complete my sexual life with my wife?
I see no reason to abstain from unprotected sex with your wife related to this event.

4- is zero risk same as no risk? 
Yes.

5- I am very worried from getting HIV. Shall I calm down and complete my life without thinking of this?
There is no reason for concern related to the event you describe.  Please do your best to move forward without concern. 

Take care.  EWH

No, even if the condom had broken, there would still be no risk for HIV. There has never been a case of HIV acquisition proven to occur following receipt of oral sex,  No concern for HIV from the activity you describe.  EWH
