Q and A


Can I get HIV from receiving oral sex?


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.



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.
