Is it possible to get hiv through oral sex?

Hi, On May 5th I gave oral with no ejaculation to another male, 3 hours before I brushed with slight gum irritation. This was my first time ever. Two weeks later I had a bad cough, a really warm neck, no fever, pain in the neck, and severe anxiety about HIV.

Hi,

I have gone through your query.
Yes, there are chances of getting HIV through oral sex. Symptoms you have mentioned might not be due to HIV but cannot be ignored either. I advise you to go for p24 test for HIV as 2 weeks are over and it is a sensitive test. It will give accurate result.


Hope I have answered you.
Wish you good health
Regards
Dr. Gaurav Katiyar
