Hi,

The chances of acquiring HIV infection are very less with oral sex. The exact percentage of oral transmission is not studied and documented.

You can do a HIV PCR test after 21 days with accurate tests results.

There is no need to panic. Just get the test done and clear your mind of it.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
