    What you should do is..nothing...well, except for considering reducing your alcohol consumption. That's a far greater risk to you than HIV.

    The ESTIMATED per-act risk from unprotected oral sex is .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures with a source KNOWN to carry the virus.

    Your risk would be less since...

    1. You cannot confirm your partners status and

    2. These estimated risks are based on the assumption that the act was carried to completion and not just for one minute.

    Because of your comment regarding not being gay, I'm going to assume that the person who did the very brief oral sex on you was a male, correct? If so, it is an inaccurate conclusion to assume that he must be gay (and therefore HIV positive) to perform that exercise on you.

    The reason i said that I am not gay and i read tht between men who are gays the chances of infection are higher. Also i checked with that guy if he was gay and if he had any infections. He said he is not gay whichi doubt. I also asked him about if he had any infections to whichhe said he had none.

    The incident which happened, he sucked me for a brief 30 secs max and then he was playin with my dick on which i came to my senses and pushed him away to stop the thnig, i am really scared of this thing now.

    You said The ESTIMATED per-act risk from unprotected oral sex is .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures with a source KNOWN to carry the virus.

    so which means i have 5 % chances of gettin a infection, is this what it means, please help

    Also it didnt happpen for a minute, I am just telling you maximum coz i dindt check the time n stuff, so just to say maximum time. While he sucked me i am sure the foreskin wasnt pulled completely back i dont know if thats of any help but i am a bit scared to tell u the truth.....
    georgiagail replied to helpmeiamscrewed's response:
    "so means I have a 5% chances of gettin a infection"..

    No, a .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures means you have a 0.0001% chance.

    Hi Gail,

    but just correct me if i am wrong, even if i had this incident for not more than a minute and also i didnt cum in his mouth any i didnt do anything besides what i have already mentioned so still i am at risk coz i couldnt see any blood or anything on my penis and also i pulled it out n the foreskin wasnt pulled back it was still in front so the opening of the penis wasnt exposed now somewherei read it seems the infection enters through broken skin and opening of the penis so considering this. Am i still atg risk
    georgiagail replied to helpmeiamscrewed's response:
    You've already been told what the risk is.


    If you remain concerned over this non-risk, consider getting an HIV screening test at the 90 day mark.
