STD Testing: With your history of risky sexual behavior you should always have frequent follow-up with primary doctor and receive frequent testing for sexually transmitted diseases. Having oral sex and intercourse with sex workers is an easy way to contract STDs, including HIV. Best course of action is to avoid these situations, use protection at all times.

A 23-year-old female asked:

My boyfriend slept with a prostitute and then I had protected sex with him after. But he gave me unprotected oral sex. Is it likely for me to get HIV?

Possibly: If your BF indeed gets infected with HIV from the prostitute (assuming the prostitute has the disease), then you are at risk for HIV as well as other STDs. If you are concerned, avoid all unprotected sex until he is found to be HIV negative and STD free (may take 3 months to be sure). Get yourself tested as well. However it is unlikely to get HIV from oral sex.
