Receiving Oral Sex Get Hiv Case
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
HIV is hard to get: Nope. Absolutely not.Get a more detailed answer ›
Probably: It's been demonstrated in non-human primates, but in large epidemiologic studies it's much less risky than other practices in which body fluids are exchanged. There are anti-HIV substances in saliva and this may be part of the explanation. You can share syphilis, gonorrhea, and herpes doing this stuff. That's enough reason to be careful. ...Read more
Rare if ever: Oral sex is a very inefficient way of transmitting hiv, giving or receiving. Still, it's best to be safe especially with a guy you don't now, and there are plenty of other things that can be transmitted this way -- famously gonorrhea for the recipient. The burning question for you is, "am I infected? " you've asked here & have a right to a quick check from your physician. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can you get hiv from giving a guy oral sex I already been test in April 30 for hiv negative do I need to be test again I went down on him March 13?
Little or no risk: HIV can be transmitted by oral sex, but extremely rarely. And if your partner has not had sex with other men and is not an injection drug user, it is very unlikely he has HIV. Finally, most HIV tests are positive within 6 weeks. If you had an antigen-antibody combination test, you're definitely home free; these tests are always positive by 4 weeks. If in doubt, ask your doctor or clinic. ...Read more
In march 2016 I had gave this boy oral sex I went yesterday and got tested can you get hiv fro oral sex? I am so worry. I test in jan for hiv and neg
Almost zero risk: Oral sex is very low risk, no need for another HIV test. For penile to oral HIV transmission, the average is once for every 10, 000 exposures. That's equivalent to giving oral to HIV infected men once daily for 27 years before transmission might be likely. And it's unlikely your partner had HIV anyway. But higher risk for oral STDs like gonorrhea; consider seeing your doctor for a throat swab. ...Read more
Rare but possible: Oral sex is less risky than unprotected vaginal or anal sex, but it still holds some risk. Especially if there are mouth ulcers or bleeding gums. Using condoms helps decrease this risk even more. Each person needs to decide their own risk tolerance with their partner. ...Read more
Unlikely: There is little data to support an opinion one way or the other, but no definitive evidence to show this is a route of transmission of hiv. Theoretically it could happen, but salivary enzymes inactivate hiv, so unless secretions containing virus reach behind the oral cavity to lymphatic tissues, including tonsils, it seems as if this would be hard to occur. No such cases have been documented. ...Read more

Had unprotected oral sex done on me. Took a HIV test 48 days later, it was negative. Should I get tested again?
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?
Let's talk: If the two of you really care about each other -- and a couple in a long-term romantic relationship should -- you should promise each other that you'll have only safe-protected sex if you go enjoy yourselves elsewhere. You should also, from time to time, go and get checked for HIV together unless you're monogamous. Wouldn't that be the loving thing to do? ...Read more

Can you get HIV from getting a blowjob? Last Monday I meant an escort and she performed oral sex on me. I wore condom for most of it n did not cum.
Low odd to catch...: The reported scenario carries low odd to catch but not impossible if she is a HIV carrier and your two lines of barriers fail to defend, i.e., having broken the mucosa in contact and poor personal humoral immune ability. Despite carrying inherent risk, the odd to contract HIV remains low. For sexually active men within high-risk category like multiple partners, a yearly test on HIV is reasonable. ...Read more
