Hello from JustAnswer.
The risk of HIV transmission by providing oral sex to a female is not zero, but it is exceedingly low. The risk is so low that the CDC is unable to estimate a numeric risk, but there are some documented cases of transmission of HIV via oral sex provided to a female. And this is for encounters that are for far longer than the 5-10 seconds that was involved in the encounter that you describe.
There is a chance of HSV transmission to the mouth if there is an active HSV sore or any shedding of the virus, but this is also a very low risk. And if there is no sore or shedding of the virus, then there would be no risk.
So, there is no reason for you to be worried about this sexual encounter.
If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
The risk of other STIs would be theoretic, rather than realistic.
There is a theoretic risk to transmission of other STIs, but there has never been a real risk that has been demonstrated.
No, since there is no reason for you to be worried, there is also no reason to be tested. If you are otherwise sexually active, then it may be appropriate to consider testing, but not because of this encounter.
As I said above, even with a complete encounter of oral sex to a female, which means that she achieved orgasm, the risk is so small that it cannot be calculated. The risk is even smaller with a brief encounter, but even with a full encounter, there would be no reason to be concerned.
There may not be any cases in Australia, but there has been a couple cases identified in the US.
I do not know what could be more reassuring than the fact that there has only been a couple of cases that have ever been reported from complete encounters of oral sex on a female, and in your case, since it was a brief encounter, the risk would be even less.
What would allow you to rest your mind more than this?
That is true. Once you decide to have sex, then you are deciding to accept the risk that is carried with that sex. In this case, you engaged in the sex act that carries the least risk, but nobody can have sex with no risk of STIs except in a lifetime mutually monogamous relationship.
You definitely do not need to worry about it and can move on.
