Oral sex is not a risk for HIV infection, unprotected or not. You did not have an exposure and don't need testing.

Because I know the stance the expert doctors take on oral sex.

Look, this isn't a debate. I've given you my risk assessment- whether you want to believe me or not is up to you.

Yes,

If you have issues accepting this advice, the answer is very simple. Have an HIV test, collect your inevitable negative result and get on with your life.

Just called terrence higgins, they said it carries a 0.4% rate of getting HIV through oral (negligible), so would you say my chances of having HIV are certain?

0.4 % risk from somone who may have HIV 0.56%. Do the maths but you have a better change of being struck my lighting whilst your dancing with madona in McDonalds.

Although we can look at it this way. In 30 years their are no reported cases of HIV transmission via oral sex, as both Kevin and Joggen have made clear. Their have been many surveys on couples where one has HIV the other dosnt, and they continue to have a full sex life with kissing oral sex ( without protection ) and protected sex. None of the negative people became positive

^^ this alone should give you enough confidence to to understand oral sex not a risk mate, let alone the 1000's of oral threads ive seen.
