Happy to help you...just to clarify -

 

She gave you oral sex? Was there any other exchange of body fluid?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No there was no exchange of body fluid except for my sperm which she took it in her mouth
Expert:  drzachary1 replied 4 years ago.

Your risk for developing and STD from oral sex is quite low. The diseases you can be checked for are:

 

HIV

Syphilis

Hepatitis

Gonorrhea

Chlamydia

Herpes

 

The first three do not have symptoms (usually) early in the disease but should be positive within 1-3 months.

 

Herpes is extremely common and can be checked by a blood test but may not be from that experience (could even get it sharing drinking glasses with someone)

 

If she had gonorrhea or herpes in her mouth, she may have passed these to you. Chlamydia does not usually get passed to the man with oral sex.

 

Saliva does carry HIV and hepatitis C (in low levels). They are spread by sharing blood (dirty needles, transfusions, anal sex, etc) As long as there were no open sores on your penis and/or there was no blood involved (sores in her mouth) the likelihood of transmission is low.

 

As for gonorrhea, chlamydia and other less common conditions, as long as you don't have any discharge or sores on your penis, or burning with urination, the chances you contracted them is almost zero. The chances of having a positive test on these from receiving oral sex is low.

 

If you were tested for HIV, Syphilis and HCV at one month and at six months and both times they were negative, you are in the clear.

 

Any follow up questions are at no additional charge, even after you "accept" my answer.

so u think i have to wait for 1month to get myself checked cause i am quiet nervous
Expert:  drzachary1 replied 4 years ago.

No, you can check now, but get checked again in six months.

Again, if this is considered a low-risk behavior in terms of HIV so don't worry uncontrollably - just be vigilant about getting tested so you can put your mind at ease.

I can get it checked by my family doctor in dubai or do u have clinic which is descreet where i can go and check
Expert:  drzachary1 replied 4 years ago.
There are anonymous clinics in the US. Is there a health insurance system where you live?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
no there are no health insurance system in dubai
Expert:  drzachary1 replied 4 years ago.

Then I would just choose another physician or urgent health clinic and ask them to not use your name. They can use your initials when they do the testing.

 

Please be kind enough to click "accept" so that I may be credited.

 

Best of health to you
