HIV Transmission Risk concerning blood
avatar
An_250146 posted:
I am a male and had a sexual encounter with another man last week. He said he was tested (and negative) in November, but this was a one time thing and I cannot 100% believe that is true/that he has not been with anyone since. My question is concerning the possibility of blood in his mouth. When we kissed he had a metallic smell/taste to him that I did not think until after the fact might have been blood. He performed unprotected oral sex on me as well as oral-anal sex on me. If he did indeed have blood in his mouth, what is the risk of the blood getting into me and transferring HIV during the oral sex (via the urethra) or during the oral-anal in the event that I had any cuts down there as a result of past hemorrhoid issues. I know the risk is basically none for oral-anal and is very low for oral, but the possibility of blood in his mouth during these acts is what concerns me.

If the fellow is HIV negative, the risk is zero. The fact he had a metallic taste when you kissed him is not an indication he was bleeding orally.
