    Given oral to HIV positive person risk?
    Lecatec posted:
    Ive given oral to somone with HIV, they didnt tell me until after.
    although they did not ejaculate during oraI am now worried i may have contracted it and what are the symptoms?what is the risk?
    georgiagail responded:
    The estimated risk from unprotected oral sex (both giving and receiving) with a positive partner is .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures; this assumes the act is carried to completion (i.e., in the case of a male, ejaculation would occur).

    Since it did not, the risk would even be less than above.

    This is an extremely, EXTREMELY low risk. If you remain concerned, get tested at the 90 day mark.
