Question

Can I get HIV from receiving oral sex?

Hi

Thanks for the great resource and wealth of information this site provides.

My question is as follows; I am male and have had an ELISA antibody test – I’m not sure what generation it was but it was in Australia, 40 days after oral sex was performed on me (hetrosexual male).

Can I rely on this as 100% proof or should I test again.

Thanks

Answer

Thank you for your question.

The chance of you getting HIV from receiving oral sex is likely to be 0. Therefore there is nothing to worry about. A negative ELISA test at 40 days together with such a low risk exposure means you do not have HIV. Please follow this link for more detailed information.
