    Can I catch HIV from kissing, receiving oral sex and rimming?

    3 months ago, I met with a commercial sex worker. She served me about 1 hour and 20 minutes.

    1. She rimmed me about 30 seconds then I told her to stop, I know that oral-anal sex is considered very low risk, but the thing is earlier in the day, I had noticed some specks of blood on the toilet paper I had used after washing my anus after I used the toilet. Does this increase the risk of infection? And because I don't know the oral health status of the woman, if she had bleeding gums, will this increase the chance of infection considering there is at least one cut on my anus according to the specks of blood on the toilet paper? I don't know if she insert her lips or tongue into my anus(I can't remember very clear), will this behavior increase the risk?

    2. She gave me a fellatio about 30 seconds then I told her to stop(I didn't ejaculate in her mouth). According to other posts in the forum, it seems that the risk of receiving oral sex is also considered a very low risk behavior, but on the CDC website, it says that bleeding gums or other open cuts and sores in the mouth can increase risk of infection. Is this a risky behavior?

    3. We didn't have any vaginal or anal intercourse, she gave me a handjob at last, I was thinking if it is possible to catch HIV virus because there is semen from a previous customer on her hand.

    4. At the end of her service, I kissed her about 10 seconds, it was an open mouth kiss but not deep. But I didn't have a very good oral health status at that time, after about 30 minutes when I was brushing me teeth, I saw my gums are bleeding, I won't say that it is very serious to confuse you, but I did see my gum is bleeding and there is blood in my mouth. Will this increase the chance of infection? If she also had bleeding gums when we are kissing, will this increase the risk?

    5. If she has other STIs, will this increase risk?


    My Status: I broke up with my last girlfriend in 2016, I have been sexual inactive from 2016 until the day I received the service.

    All your activities with this person are considered to be extremely low or non-risk for HIV.

    However, since you appear to be overly concerned about all of this (and, of course, there are other STI's that are quite easy to pass on to one another), testing for these can always be considered.

    Unfortunately, we weren't there when you two underwent this activity so we have no idea if her gums were bleeding during the oral sex, rimming, etc..
