Hii.. I have received oral sex from more than 4 Sex workers... I never had vaginal sex... is there any chance of getting HIV... I am very scared

Hi, Thanks for your question. Oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission. However, this can be different for the transmission of other STIs such as gonorrhoea or chlamydia, which can often show no symptoms but are easily treatable! We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. If you live in NSW, you can find the nearest place to get tested here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/where-to-get-tested/. If you have any more questions, you can also call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where a sexual health nurse can answer your questions over the phone.

I received oral sex from a girl, I didn’t have Intercourse I just came in her mouth , can I get aids from that,

Hi, Thanks for your question. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that can be transmitted from a person living with HIV who is not on treatment to a HIV negative person. HIV weakens the immune system, and when it gets to a critical point, it can lead to AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). It isn’t AIDS itself that is being transmitted between people. That said, oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmissions. However, this can be different for other STIs such as gonorrhoea or chlamydia, which sometimes don’t show symptoms. Although, they are easily treatable! We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. If you live in NSW, you can find the nearest place to get tested here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/where-to-get-tested/.

Can you catch anything if a guy cums on your tongue

Thanks for your question. The risk of HIV being transmitted this way is considered very low to no risk. However, this can be different for other STIs such as gonorrhoea and chlamydia. These STIs can often have no symptoms but are easily treatable. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have routine sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic 4 times a year (every 3 months).

I had unprotected oral sex about 5.5 months back. I took PEP and had a negative 4th gen test at 4.5 months after PEP. I also tested for STI's, Hep C and Hep B. I still have symptoms like diarrhoea and fatigue. I don't know what to do. Further in my country PEP is not available at govt. clinics and there is not much awareness and the doctor won't recommend a RNA test for HIV. I am worried about my health.

Hi, Thanks for your question. Oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission. This means that the risk of HIV transmission is very unlikely through unprotected oral sex. However, this can be different for the transmissions of STIs so we do recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. It’s great to hear that you’ve been having these tests with your doctor and that your results have been coming back negative. The symptoms you’re describing can be caused by many different things so it’s important to seek further medical advice from your doctor. If your symptoms are persisting, we would recommend seeking further support from a health professional.

Hi, I give and receive fellatio to a male who I don't know his HIV Status, He did not ejaculated in my mouth, so did I (1 time in my life experience this oral sex). I have a very little gum problem in my upper teeth, already been there for 1 year already, but is not bleeding. Other than that all my mouth condition is good enough. I never did any kind of sex (anal or vagina). Am I risk for HIV? I assume there is a pre cum in my mouth. Please answer my question. Best Regards.

Hello, I am a man who recieved oral sex from a woman I don't know 6 days ago. She put durex lube on my penis before giving oral sex and I know I don't have cuts or sores on my penis. She looked healthy, doing sports etc. She smoked crystal meth before giving oral sex and I believe she regularly smokes meth. But I didn't see blood in her mouth too (didn't pay attention actually). Can any blood in her mouth (because of meth) go through my urethra and infect me with hiv? I'm very concerned. It would be great if you could answer me. Thanks!

Hi. In one of the article, it said that receiving an oral sex alone doesn't have any risk of HIV infection. Is it really completely risk free for a man to receive Fallatio from a woman? If not should I consider taking PEP?

Hi, Thanks for your question. The risk for HIV transmission during oral sex is considered very low to no risk. Taking PEP would be more appropriate if you had unprotected sex with someone who’s HIV status is unknown, if the condom had broken or slipped off during sex or if you were sharing needles or syringes with another person. However, for oral sex the risk for other STIs can be different so we recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic.
