Hello doctor. I performed cunnilingus on a CSW who i think was hiv positive. The cunnilingus as far as I remember wasn't really deep and lasted less than 30 secon, although I am not quit sure. In a time window of 2 weeks I developed all of the ARS. Fever, rash, night sweats, buzzing ears, headache, lost of weight, lack of appetite, fatigue, white layer on my tongue, heath flushes, amongst others. I took a third-generation test three weeks after my exposure and it came negative, and since my only exposure has been the one I am talking about, I know I was not sick before. My questions:

1. How likely is to get HIV from performing cunnilingus? Please assessment my risk. Many websites suggest that it's theoritical, but to me it seems like it is very real.
2 I think I might've had little cuts on my lips, does that increase the risk?
3 which factors could increase the likelihood of my getting hiv through the mentioned practice? (Vaginal fluid, menstrual blood,etc).

Thanks for your answers

Here are a few facts that you need to understand about oral sex and HIV.

There have been no studies measuring the risk of getting the AIDS virus through oral sex alone. But available evidence suggests that:

1. HIV is not easy to get from any kind of oral sex.. The risk is much lower than that of unprotected penetrative anal or vaginal sex. This is because HIV is normally only present in saliva in very low levels that are not sufficient to cause infection. The linings of the mouth and throat are very resistant to viral infections such as HIV, so infection is unlikely if they are healthy.

2. Bleeding gums, gum disease, and sores in the mouth can make it easier to get infected with HIV through oral sex.

3. Active partners (giving oral sex) have a higher risk of getting infected with HIV , specifically, if they have oral ulcers, sores or cuts in their oral cavity and in case, there is ejaculation in the oral cavity (for partners providing oral sex to men)

In case of men proving oral sex to females, the active partner, the risk of infection is present only if you had infected blood (in large amounts) within your mouth, and you had cuts or ulcers within your mouth.

But this is usually unlikely, as any person would stop giving oral sex in the presence of blood. Hence your risk would technically be low.

The step forward, is to contact the girl and seek clarification about her STD status, and if you need to take any precautions. If you cannot do that, then getting tested is the only way to clear your doubts.

Thanks for answering doctor.

40 days have passed and most of my symptoms are disappearing. Although some of them remain in a milder way. I am already convinced that it is HIV. Some extra questions.

1. Is vaginal fluid infectious enough to be able to contract it when in contact with this?

2. If the woman was recently infected or untreated, would that have made it easier to contract HIV through cunnilingus

3. I don't recall that blood was present in a great amount, if there were remains of, for example menstrual blood, would this be enough?

4. I have a good oral health, no bleeding gums, no sores, no cm bleeding cuts. Are cuts as those of chapped lips a route to blood stream? A tongye with a burning sensation? I also tend to bit the inner part of my mouth. I think one of these was the reason I contracted it.

5. As I already said,the licking wasn't deep. How true is it that the virus dies when it is outside the human body?

Once again, thanks for answering.
