What are the chances of catching HIV or aids when performing 5min oral sex to female unknown if she has HIV or aids?

Very Low: The risk of contracting HIV from oral sex on a female is very low. However, if there is open sores present on either partner or blood present, then the chances increase slightly. Determining an actual percentage risk is difficult, as many couple use oral sex as a lead up to anal or vaginal sex, which has a higher risk of exposure. ...Read more

Low risk but other: From the San Francisco Aids foundation Can I get HIV from a blowjob? from giving head? from getting a BJ? Or from swallowing semen? Oral sex is much less risky than anal or vaginal sex – but HIV still can enter through open cuts and sores, or possibly by infecting the lining of the mouth. There are some documented cases of people getting HIV through their mouth. Once semen gets past the mouth, stomach acid and enzymes in the esophagus kill the virus. So swallowing or spitting out semen (cum or precum) reduces your risk for HIV, compared with letting it sit in your mouth. A popular jingle is: Spit or Swallow, Don’t Let it Wallow. To reduce your risk even more, make sure you keep the mucous membranes in your mouth healthy – don’t perform oral for about 45 minutes after you brush your teeth, floss, or engage in any other aggravating oral behavior, and not at all when you have open sores. Remember, while the chance of catching HIV from oral sex is very low, you can easily catch other STDs, in particular gonorrhea and chlamydia. What about other types of sex? ...Read more

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

Close to no risk: It is good that you take the threat of HIV/AIDS seriously, but to be fair to yourself, find a good source of information and study it. Worry will take a lot of the joy from sex and knowledge will relieve worry when you're safe. Her saliva would be a very poor (really zero) carrier even if she was positive. And, you'd need an open wound on your penis. You're okay, but learn. Best wishes! ...Read more
