eg. How do you approach an STD test with a new partner?

Does a cut AFTER oral sex increase risk?

Asked by on

Hello, here’s my situation and quest

I’ve performed oral sex on a partners of unknown STD status clitoris (rest was protected).
Then i drank some wine, had a smoke and cleaned my mouth with a mouthwash (though not really properly)
Then i was licking a lid of food and got a small cut on the tip of my mouth.

So the question:
Is it a cause of concern IF it was the only thing that it came down to? i didn’t have any cuts before that.
Can an STD survive that long in a mouth?(it was about 40 minutes after the act)
Thank you

It is possible for some sexually transmitted infections (STIs) to survive in the mouth for a period of time, however the risk of transmission is generally considered to be low. The risk of transmission may be increased if there is an open wound or cut present, so it is important to take precautions.

So it is important to get tested for any potential STDs.
