Brief Answer: Oralsex low risk.Antigentest after 4weeks reliable Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting query. Oral sex carries a very low risk for HIV compared to anal and vaginal sex. HIV antigen tests (HIV DNA PCR, P24 Antigen test, 3rd or 4th generation COMBO/DUO) are quite reliable and conclusive one after 4 weeks. Dr S.Murugan
