Hi, I had oral sex with a guy in which I was the receptive ( receiving oral pleasure ) from the guy we kissed as well. I didn’t have sex with him only oral sex and ejaculated in his mouth. After 3 days had fever and sore throat which passed quickly. After two weeks i did 4th generation ag/ab it was negative. After 2 weeks i felt soreness in my armpit and groin which lasted for almost 2 months. I did 4th generation test again on 52 day and was negative again. I then did self auto test VIH at home on 87 day which complete 12 weeks and it was negative too. Should I go for another test again or no?

Hi Thanks for your question. There is no risk for HIV to be transmitted through kissing. Oral sex is also considered very low to no risk for HIV transmissions. This would mean that it would have been very unlikely for HIV to be transmitted through the sexual encounter you described. HIV tests can also have a window period of between 2 weeks and 3 months depending on the test. This is the period of time it takes for a reactive result to appear after any possible exposure to HIV. We always recommend confirming with the medical centre that provides your test what their window periods are, and for you to get re-tested after that window period to have a conclusive result of your HIV status. The symptoms you’re describing can also be caused by different things, so we would recommend seeking further medical advice from your doctor or health professional

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/.

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.
