Customer Question

Hello Doctor
I am freaking out as I did something very stupid.
I had unprotected oral sex from a woman that is HIV+, I also French kissed her for 2 minutes. There are no cuts or gums problems in my mouth.
- What are my chances of acquiring HIV from these activities?
- I'm married and I can't tell my wife about this incidence. I have read that insertive oral sex is negligence risk so should I continue having sex with my wife before the 90 days test period?
- What other STDs am I at risk of acquiring?
Thanks

Hello,

I understand your concern.

Chances of HIV from such activities are very less(risk is 1 in 1000) with HIV positive partner.

I recommend to go for HIV RNA PCR for a precautionary measure.

Chances of other STD like Hepatitis B,Herpes are present.

Get your STD panel done.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
Waiting for your response.It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

But in Canada they refuse to do HIV RNA PCR for only such activity as the ER department consider it very low risk and the HIV rna pcr is very tiring and have complications
What should I do?
Do you think I should stay away from my wife for 90 days?
Expert:  DoctorAnil replied 5 months ago.

Hello,

Actually there is very negligible risk so you shouldn't worry for HIV.

However get STD panel done.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your answer Doctor. If it's negligible risk why did you suggest HIV RNA PCR , I've read that HIV RNA PCR is only for very high risk activities. So did you think that my activity with HIV+ woman is vey risky? I'm getting confused now since you changed your mind
Please clarify
Expert:  DoctorAnil replied 5 months ago.

I have suggested your HIV RNA PCR because of two reasons-

1) Precautionary measure

2)It has the shortest potential window period and can be used from 3 days to 4 weeks after an exposure and you needn't to wait for 90 days.

So if there is no availability of HIV RNA PCR in your city then you needn't to get it compulsory.

Chances of HIV are negligible with such activities.

However I still recommend STD panel done.

Hello
Do you think I should go do PEP test ?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I mean pep treatment
Expert:  DoctorAnil replied 5 months ago.

Probably since it is a low risk activity your doctor may not want to start PEP treatment.
