1) Oral sex and HIV/STIs
HIV is not a risk when you give oral sex to a woman. It is possible to get gonorrhea and Chlamydia, but these STIs are not commonly passed this way. HPV (warts), syphilis and herpes are easily passed when giving oral sex.
HIV is not passed when you get oral sex. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, HPV, syphilis and herpes are easily passed when you get oral sex.
The HIV test is 95% accurate at 6 weeks. That means there is a five percent chance that the test result will change between 8 - 12 weeks.
The Chlamydia and gonorrhea tests done 7 weeks after contact should be accurate.
Most of the time syphiilis testing is accurate 6 weeks after contact, but it can take up to 12 weeks.
