    Hello,
    I have been reading about ways in which HIV can be transmitted. Although oral is said to be a low risk activity, I am unable to find any solid evidence of anyone contracting the virus through just oral sex.

    Just over two weeks ago I performed oral sex on a man. He did not ejaculate in my mouth, and I had no open cuts or sores in my mouth. I suffer from anxiety and I cant help but worry I have put myself at a great risk.

    I spoke to him before I performed oral. I expressed to him my worries of STD's and he assured me he's never had anything and that he was recently tested and all clean. I am still a virgin and oral sex is the furthest I've gone.

    Oral sex is an act performed by billions of people, frequently through both homosexual and heterosexual people. If HIV was transmitted this way then surely there would be a few cases of it each month? I'd like to know what you think. Thanks for reading!
