Extremly unlikely: HPV is rarely if ever transmitted mouth to genitals. It can be acquired in the mouth by oral sex, but rarely goes in the other direction. However, you can expect to have HPV someday; almost all sexually active people are eventually infected, mostly from genital or anal sex, not oral. That's why you and all young people need HPV vaccine, to prevent infection with the most troublesome HPV types. ...Read more
Trichomonas: Trichomonas is a parasitic infection, and is usually transmitted by vaginal exposure to the infecting organism, not by "receiving oral sex". The problem is that if ALL sexual partners are not treated, the parasite will re-infect all exposed. So if either partner has or is seeing another person, the infection will continue. ...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

Not HIV transmission: HIV is not transmitted by receiving oral sex. That said, life can surprise you sometimes. One should continue to do routine HIV screening as advised by one's regular doctor. That means screening once or twice a year, if having a non-monogamous relationship (more than one partner). Whether or not receiving oral sex makes no difference, because that does not noticeably increase one's risk of HIV. ...Read more
Rare...but possible: Depends on several factors: are both of you monogamous? Are you having both oral and vaginal sexual penetration? Is this a new sexual partner? The best idea is to get an STD screen. Use condoms and spermicidal foam or jelly ...Read more

Is testing for hiv at 3months
100% conclusive ? Exposure was receiving oral (blackout while drunk)
Yes: The new fourth-generation tests, done on blood, are conclusive. I hope, Mark, that you'll feel safe, and that you'll be able to laugh off what happened to you rather than consider yourself permanently injured. Everybody who experiments with alcohol has some tragicomic experiences. I hope that an older, wiser you finds real love and can smile about things that happened growing up. Cheers. ...Read more

I was receiving oral sex last night, and her braces ripped a small piece of my frenulum. How might this effect me and should it get reattached?
Unnecessary...: It would be most reasonable to leave a small coitus-related tearing of frenulum alone without further physical irritation so to allow spontaneous natural healing to take place. If the foreskin is long and healing is poor with protracted healing course, circumcision would be the choice of care after a direct look and balancing medical necessity and professional possibility. ...Read more

Chlamydia can cause pharngeal/ throat infection when spread via oral sex. This isn't a common method of transmission. My understanding is that chlamydia isn't spread through saliva. I am not aware of chlamydia being spread oral to genital via saliva. ...Read more
