1. From the protected anal...zero
From the unprotected oral for one minute...likely just about zero. Oral sex carries an extremely low risk of HIV transmission; think along the lines of an estimated risk of .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures with a source KNOWN to carry the virus. This assumes that the oral sex lasted longer than one minute and again, this is with a source known to be HIV positive. Your risk would be even less since you do not know this persons status.


2. If you remain concerned, doing so should ease your concerns.

3. We don't attempt to diagnose HIV by symptoms, only by risk. The risks were outlined above.
