  • Gave oral sex to a sex worker with an ulcer in mouth

    Hi doctors,

    My last exposure was 22nd March 2019 with a female sex worker. I had protected vaginal sex and received unprotected oral sex from her. I then proceeded to give her unprotected cunnilingus as well and I realised that I actually have a small mouth ulcer afterwards. Over the years, I do have several encounters with female sex workers and we engage in protected vaginal sex all the time but unprotected oral sex most of the time.

    Just wanted to find out what is my risk of HIV here? And when is the earliest I can go for the STDs/HIV screening for the results to be accurate? Do you recommend going for the comprehensive screening @ 390 SGD?

    Thank you and looking forward to your reply

    Thank you for your enquiry. Your risk of HIV is low to moderate. Sexual contact with sex workers, even with condom usage, is considered to be high risk sexual activity. If you regularly engage in such activity, it is best to undergo regular STD/HIV screening. You should consider comprehensive screening.
