STD’s and oral?

Asked by on June 23, 2014

I gave a guy oral sex, unprotected. I didn’t let him orgasm in my mouth, so i’m wondering what are the chances of me contracting an STD from him? Also, this occurred a day ago. When is the best time to go get tested for any STD’s? Is there a certain time period you should wait, or get it done immediately?

takes up to 3 days to show, if he has passed an infection on to you.

There are several STD’s that can be transmitted orally, including HIV, HPV, gonorrhea, and herpes. It would be best for you to see your health-care provider soon, but know that some tests (like HIV) won’t be accurate if done immediately.

Here’s an article I wrote about it:

Good Luck!
