Hi,
I am sure this is causing a lot of stress on you. The most common ways in which HIV spreads is by sexual contact.Oral sex has been shown to be a less risky activity than these practices, but is definitely not risk free.The HIV antibody test can take months to turn positive after infection occurs. I would suggest you to have a blood test for sexually transmitted diseases to rule out. You may also want to make sure that your partner is also free from HIV.Always remember to have safe sex with the use of a codomn.
