STD risk for receiving oral without condom?

I recently had unprotected oral sex with a sex worker. She gave me oral without a condom. I think it lasted about 5 minutes.

Please, can someone tell me what are my chances of contracting an STD? This was the only time I've had this experience. Are there percentages available that I can look up? Are there any drugs I can take to reduce the risk of being infected?

This lady did not appear to be sick or have any open sores, but I know for a fact that she regularly gives bareback bj's. I was certainly clean, and took a shower before and after the act. I have had no prior STD's. I never plan to try this again, because this one incident has me worried to death, and we didn't even have sex.

The risk of infection, from body fluids, is lower through oral route than through unprotected sexual intercourse. Please get yourself checked out. The infection is easily cleared at an early stage with antibiotics.

Re: STD risk for receiving oral without condom?

I know of no statistics. The main worry would be herpes, if she had cold sores. Some men, too, report problems that are similiar to prostatitis, and that you get a generalized discomfort, but nothing wrong is ever identified.

While unprotected is hardly safe, especially from a sex worker who regularly gives unprotected sex, it is still much safer than unprotected intercourse. I suggest that you relax, as worrying will not help. If you see signs or feel symptoms, then see a doctor. And next time, insist on a condom so you will not have to face this worry.

Your risk is pretty much nil. The only thing you would really be at a chance of getting is the oral form of herpes, which can occaisionally show up in the genital area. This is not common, and would only be likely if she had a cold sore at the time.

Thats not reallly the case... I too thought oral was more or less safe, except for HSV1 if their having an outbreak but its far from the truth.

Gonnahrea and/or clymadia are quite common via oral sex, as it easily cultures in the throat as well as the genital area. HSV1 is also a possibility... more likely during an outbreak but they can be sheading the virus at any time so its always possible although unlikelly. 3/4 of the population has hsv1 orrally and if you have it orally you probably wont get it genitallly... and it doesnt shead often so its not a big problem.

Its also possible to get siphilis via oral... the cancre from syphilis often appears in the mouth making transmission possible. Theres even a theoretical risk of getting HIV via oral. I think the odds are 0.5 per 10000 exposures to an HIV positive person.

Myself I had unprotected oral and got gonnahrea. Had it treated and 11 months later im still having issues from it. So its definitely not the SAFE sex people tend to think it is. Its safer than other forms of sex, but not pefect.
