Low risk: What you described does not put you at high risk, unless you have had anal sex with other men. In any case you should get a HIV nucleic acid test in about 6 months. If that test result is negative, you could consider yourself free of HIV, unless you get additional exposures. ...Read more

Low: Get checked anyway. This sort of thing can cause serious trouble -- not just HIV infection, but other sexually transmitted diseases, and an unwanted pregnancy. There are sperms in that pre-ejaculate. Learn from this experience, use barrier protection, and also cherish the memory of having been loved -- it's always precious, even if it's never perfect. Best wishes. ...Read more

See below: The risk of contracting HIV via oral sex is very low, but not zero. HIV most easily transmitted by unprotected anal sex (i.e. without condoms), unprotected vaginal sex, sharing injecting equipment, and from mother to baby.

Can you tell me about HIV from pre-ejaculate and anal fissure. What are my chances?

Get tested: If I understand your question, you have an anal fissure and during a sexual encounter, the fissure was exposed to semen, or some fluid from the penis of an infected individual with HIV. If that is the case, you are at risk for acquiring HIV. I advise you to seek testing ASAP for HIV - may require two tests over a few weeks. Depending on the timing of exposure, you may be started on HIV meds ...Read more
