Hello. I had unprotected oral...
Hello. I had unprotected oral sex with a man I do not know well. He assured me that he was negative for STD' s and that he gets tested regularly. He came in my mouth a little bit but I pulled away and spit most of it out. The problem is that when I brushed and flossed my teeth about 5 hours prior to this i noticed blood in the sink. I'm worried I may have contracted HIV from him. Please advise. I did drink some alcohol earlier in the night if that helps.

Welcome to Just Answer.
Answers here are for education and information.
I will respond shortly with an answer, or further information request.

Let me give you all the perspective;

1) There is all the chance that he is HIV negative as he mentioned. It makes the exposure zero risk.

2) Flossing and brushing may cause tiny erosions which seal immediately. Thus they do not expose you to risk of HIV transmission (we are assuming him to be HIV positive).

3) Even if you have an ulcer or sore in mouth, a single exposure of oral sex with HIV partner is one in thousand, which is extremely low.

Thus there is nothing worrisome.

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.

Ok. Even if there was a lot of blood prior would that still make the risk any less?

Risk overall with the oral sex is negligible and nearing zero.

It is privilege assisting you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
