Hello Chris, I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.STDs can be passed through oral sex. The risk increases if either of partners have sores or cuts around the mouth. Rubbing penis on clitoris also would not be absolutely risk free. Having said that, few other factors may also apply for incidence of transmission;1) Your partner may not have STD.2) An single unsafe / unprotected sex may not transmit virus, bacteria or organisms. So statistically there is a chance of no transmissionIf you do not know your partner well; it is recommended to get a STD screening around 7-10 days and at 4 weeks, of exposure of this kind for the cautionary reason.Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.

Can you talk more about the STDs I would be at risk for and can you measure your level of concern on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the strongest level? How dangerous was the clitoris rubbing?
Hmm, that does make me a little nervous, but I do understand. I wish I could find a way to relieve my anxiety about the encounter.
So you would still feel generally optimistic about my chances for not have contracting an STD? Especially Im nervous about HIV, as that is so serious while the others are treatable. I definitely appreciate your honesty, it is very valuable and important. Without the honesty, I would not be able to take the answers seriously. So if I understand correctly, you would say that out of 100 random couples who engaged in exposure like me, maybe 1-3 would have contracted an STD? How many for HIV do you think? I know this is all hypothetical anyway. Was the clitoris rubbing incident a really dumb move on my part?
So you are saying that if she had HIV, it would be about 1-2 percent chance that I would have contracted it from that exposure? So is the risk higher for the other diseases because they are stronger and more easily contracted? Is HIV especially weak or harder to get, even with an infected partner?
Even if she has HIV the chance of transmission is less than 3 in one thousand (0.3%)
Where did you come up with that figure? Just curious, not trying to challenge you . I just want to believe it and feel somewhat relieved.
Thank you very much for this chart, its really great. It helps explain a lot. So are those numbers on a per exposure basis and why would it be different low income to high income country if the activity was the same? Is it assuming that the partner does have HIV in those figures?
So when it says .08%, vaginal sex, female to male in high income countries, is that assuming the one partner definately has HIV?
I wonder how they measure exposures, like if I rubbed 5 times, with that me 5 exposures and that roll of the dice is rolled for each of those 5 times? or is stat that for the whole act all together, like all 3 hours of time spent?
can you explain the term "late stage disease", how would I know if that were true? Thanks so much, you are helping a lot.
it is one of the figures in the HIV stats chart you sent me. One of the categories. It lists the risk as .55 percent or 1 in 187. I wondered what " late stage disease" meant in their context.
Thank you very much.
