Brief Answer: HIV risk is very low through oral sex. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. As per Center for Disease Control at Atlanta, oral sex carries a very low risk for HIV. That too, you involved only in an insertive oral sex. Saliva is not infectious. There is exposure to semen. So the HIV risk is negligible. Regarding your HIV rapid test on saliva during 2011 would have a high reliability if it had been done 3 months after your previous high risk contact. Good luck to you.
