Hiv (Definition)

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).

What is the likely of HIV infection thro giving cunnilingus/body licking if there was no vaginal fluids/body sweat and no mouth cuts/sores? Need test?

Mucous membranes: Mucous membranes, not mucous, is the transmitted media for HIV. Your mouth has a mucous membrane and the clitoris cannot be contacted in oral sex without contacting the vulvo/vaginal mucosa. HIV testing is always wise even under your suggested circumstances. ...Read more

Why is cunnilingus very low risk for hiv?

Oral Sex: There are several different kinds of oral sex. In your case, I believe you are asking about a male putting his mouth or tongue on the skin and genitals of a female.

Hiv is not transmitted from skin. It is transmitted from semen or blood directly to blood. There are no receptors for HIV to 'infect' you on your lips or tongue. Performing oral sex on a female is one of the lowest std risks. ...Read more

I gave unprotected cunnilingus. After this I had a 4th gen ag/ab test at 30 days and an d a negative oraquick at 81 can I forget about hiv and move on

No risk, no worries: HIV has never been known to be transmitted by cunnilingus (oral vaginal contact). That doesn't mean it can't happen, but if it does, it is exceedingly rare. You really didn't need testing, but in any case your test results prove you weren't infected. Indeed you can "forget about HIV and move on". ...Read more

What do you advise if I had sex with 3 call girls using condom, I never done cunnilingus, now please guys tellme when should I go for HIV test?

Now: Serial fornicator queries whether he needs HIV test now; in light of a triad of recent conquests; even though there were rubber barriers between mucosal surfaces of both penetrator and penetratee. The answer is a hearty "yes"; with regard for need of a serum baseline (a date stamp of sorts) for what might become future risky behavior requiring need for additional infection surveillance. ...Read more

A month ago, I had an cunnilingus, for ten minutes, feel the tongue already into the vagina, may I be infected with HIV? Whether to need to do test?

Everybody tests: Tongues don't transmit HIV infections to vaginas. Likewise, vaginas don't transmit HIV infections to tongues. Of course, other infections can be transmitted, but that's uncommon (but the owner of the tongue and the owner the vagina should get to know one another pretty well, prior to such activities). In any case, everybody who has a new sex partner should consider an annual HIV screening test. ...Read more

I heard hiv concentration is low at the Starting of vagina (lips, clitoris...) higher inside cervix, is it true? Is this ONE of the reason why cunnilingus is considered low risk by cdc?

It may be one reason: I don't know whether HIV concentration is low at the vaginal opening. I'm not aware of any studies of it, but it makes sense. However, that's probably only part of the reason that cunnilingus carries little or no risk of HIV. Saliva inactivates HIV, and swallowing infected blood or secretions is low risk. Whatever the reasons, there has never been a proved case of HIV transmission by cunnilingus. ...Read more

I have sub centimeter lymph nodes and rashes on front and back of my neck. Cunnilingus on stripper vagina for 1 min, 4 weeks ago, in canada. Not sure of oral health then. Freaking out hiv. Is it ARS?

About Canadians: Keep calm. Cunnilingus with a Canadian isn't the type of carnal activity that causes HIV infections. Cervical centimeter or sub-centimeter lymph nodes have many, many causes, such as common throat conditions. One's regular doctor can check things out. One's dentist can do a twice-a-year dental cleaning. If continued concerns, no more cunnilingus. ...Read more
