Thanks for writing in with your concerns. Oral sex is considered a low risk activity for HIV transmission. It can however be a way for syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea to be well transmitted. The incubation window for syphilis is between 10 to 90 days and the earliest the testing can detect chlamydia or gonorrhea is at 2 weeks post sex ( can detect earlier if there is symptoms). It would be advisable for both of you to test so you both know your own status and if any STI’s are detected, you can both be treated. If you have had unprotected sex with your wife since this partner, then your wife would of course need to be treated as well. If you have any other questions or need resources, please write back.
