HIV from receiving unprotected sex with bleeding gums?

Hi. So i received unprotected oral sex from a sex worker. Her gums were bleeding when I saw. Later I asked her for a HIV test. We tested at 3 labs. 2 were rapid tests while one was p24 + antibody test. All were negative. However p24 covers only till before 28 days. Do I need to get another test done? I am worried a lot.

You do not need to test again and in fact never did need to test at all . The only ways people get HIV is to have unprotected vaginal or anal sex or to share IV drug needles to inject drugs. Air and saliva inactivate the virus. Oral sex is not a risk. Her bleeding gums will not change that. No one in the history of HIV has ever been proven to get HIV from oral sex. So, no need to test or worry about that exposure.

Her blood was there on my penis too. Still no need to worry?
This is not a worry. You have to have a penis in a vagina or anus for transmission.
