  • STD/STI testing

    Hi doctor,

    I engaged in heavy petting (no penetration) with brief rubbing of mutual genital areas as well as giving blow job (unprotected) to a woman of unknown HIV/STD status. I did not receive one. What is the risk of contacting HIV/STD? Do I need to go for any tests and what are the recommended tests?

    Thank you.

    Hi, from what you have described, the risk of HIV transmission is virtually zero. However, there is a risk of other STD infections such as Herpes and Syphilis. Even if you do not have any symptoms, it would be wise to visit a doctor for a formal consultation and he/she can advise you on the screening tests that you should undergo.
