Your situation isn't any different from hundreds of posts on this forum. You never had an exposure, never had a risk for HIV, never needed PEP, shouldn't have been prescribed PEP, and have overreacted to a no risk situation.
Thanks for your reply! The posts I have read have been people who did not know the status of the other person, or woke up the next day with a sore throat and worried they had HIV.
I have had it confirmed he is HIV positive, I know that oral sex is a theoretical risk of getting HIV and not a documented one. But the fact is there is still a risk regardless of how great or small! Although its only theoretical I am still concerned due to him not receiving any treatment yet and the new guidance for doctors with regards to prescribing PeP she felt that the sitatuion merited it to be given to me!
I was hoping she would have not given it too me! This is not something that I wanted and she has put the fear in to me! Plus I would not say I have over reacted to anything a risk is a risk no matter of how small or great it is, I was hoping that someone had been in the same situation so they can give me a personal view on it. But thank you for your response!
