    Need expert opinion

    I performed oral sex, fellatio and anal rimming, on an individual yesterday. He says he is tested clean and I have no reason to doubt that. My concern is in the fact that I had, still have, a cut on my tongue that is not 100% healed. I'm aware this was not a smart thing to do. The cut was pretty large initially and had been healing for 6 days at the time. It had stopped hurting and looked normal, not raw at all, but still not closed up completely for a couple days and just slipped my mind that it was still there.

    I always practice safe sex and do not get with random people...this whole forgetting I had a wound is foolish though. Again, this person says they are tested clean. Any advice is greatly appreciated...and yes I'm going to wait a week and get tested again.

    Btw...what I'm looking for are opinions on the risks of hepatitis exposure and how long before I would see symptoms of infection of any kind.

    georgiagail replied to mtapollo's response:
    Very likely you would not see symptoms of any kind.

    Testing would be recommended at the 90 day mark.

    mtapollo replied to georgiagail's response:
    Thanks for your reply.

    I decided to get tested tomorrow and see what they say about the incident, then again in a month or so. Obviously I'm concerned about my health and any STD I could get, not just hep. I'm quite positive I received that vaccination, also.

    I understand this was a risky activity...but could you comment on the likelihood of catching something from it when the partner says they are regularly tested clean?
    georgiagail replied to mtapollo's response:
    If you receive a vaccination for Hepatitis, it would possibly be for "A" and "B"; not the "C" strain since there currently is no vaccine for that strain at this time. However, keep in mind that Hepatitis, like HIV is a fairly difficult virus to pick up.

    Whether you could "catch" anything from a partner who says they are regularly tested (and test clean) depends, of course, on how truthful the partner is regarding this information.
