It was oral sex to him. It was a hospital blood test. Not sure which one
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. David, Other replied 8 months ago

oral sex has a 1 in 10,000 chance of you contracting HIV if he had HIV.

the chances are very very small.

I would consider you being HIV negative.

if you get more HIV testing, I bet you will be negative.

let me know if you have questions.

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.

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!!
