I made oral sex to a girl and don't know if she was HIV positive. After 3 months i made the oraquick test and it was negative. Is this result accurate? And how probable is to get HIV with oral sex?

Oral sex (both giving and receiving) carries an extremely low risk of HIV transmission.


The estimated risk we use for unprotected oral sex is .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures with a source known to carry the virus.


The recommended time period for testing (which you have done) is 3 months after a "potential" exposure. Thus, you can trust your test results.
