Hello XXXXXXX,

Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern for the transmission of HIV but since you have protected sex with condoms, chances of transmission of HIV are less. Oral sex with an infected partner carries a small risk of HIV infection and this risk if present if you have bleeding gums or tiny sores or ulcers somewhere in the mouth, which causes a risk of HIV entering the bloodstream.

Hence chances of HIV transmission are very less in your case. In case you are apprehensive about the status of HIV then you can get investigated for it. Most people develop detectable HIV antibodies within 6 to 12 weeks of infection but sometes it may take upto 6 months.

I suggest you to do a rapid HIV test which uses a blood sample or oral fluids and is easy to be done. This should be followed by a Western blot and PCR (viral load test) which can identify HIV in the blood within two or three weeks of infection.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up query.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Hello,

Thanks for writing back to me.

I understand what you say and i can sense your apprehension as well. Relax, as i said before, the chances of transmission of HIV by oral sex are very less. If you are not having any sores or bleeding gums, then it decreases the chances of transmission of HIV all the more.

CDC (centre for disease control and prevention) has clearly stated that specific fluids (blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk) from an HIV-infected person can transmit HIV. These specific fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the blood-stream (from a needle or syringe) for transmission to possibly occur.

Many people do not develop symptoms after they first get infected with HIV. Others have a flu-like illness within several days to weeks after exposure to the virus. It is not necessary that you have to wait for weeks to get investigated for HIV.

HIV testing is done with a blood test and is done in full confidentiality. The blood is first tested by ELISA test which is a screening test which looks for antibodies in the blood. Then if it is positive then Western blot test is done to look for specific proteins of HIV. These tests may show accuracy after 6 weeks to 6 months as HIV antibodies take time to develop in the body.

You can get a rapid test for HIV done now and get it repeated after 6 weeks of suspected HIV exposure.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up query.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
