What are the chances of contracting HIV from performing oral sex to a 55 year old, no ejaculation and maybe pre-ejaculated. Sources welcomed! thanks!
A chance: I don't know if anyone can answer that question exactly. There are a lot of factors that might change the risk such as if he is on any HIV medications/antiviral drugs. You should get tested for hiv. Testing should be available to you for free (and confidentially) at your local health department. Use a condom. ...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
Improbable: There is no indication that cunnilingus (oral sex on a woman) is likely to transmit hiv. There is unquestioned transmission when through semen ejaculated past the tongue to the tonsils and other lymphatic tissue, but salivary enzymes are known to inactivate the hiv. Accumulating definitive data is obviously difficult, but no evidence that cunnilingus does transmit this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

No such cases have been documented. ...Read more
Took rapid HIV test 2 years after possible exposure (performing oral sex) ..negative result..can I trust the result?
Rapid HIV tests ok: The commercially available rapid HIV tests are just as accurate as other HIV tests and a negative result 2 years after a high risk exposure would rule out HIV. The tests have a very high sensitivity (the ability to be positive when people have the disease). Do not test immediately after a high-risk exposure. It takes 2 to 8 weeks for the body to make antibodies against HIV, which the test measures ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
