Oral sex risk, condom issue

Hi, thank you for your service. Two weeks ago I gave protected oral to another man. The issue is the condom was too small for his penis and he thought it was inside out. So that means that my mouth got in touch with possible fluids deposited to the tip or other parts of the condom. Was I in risk?

No. You did not engage in a risky behaviour. Oral, even with out a condom is not a risk for transmission.

Presence of saliva creates an obstruction for viral fusion with the mucous membrane layer of the stomach. Also, ingesting infected fluid is not an effective route to transmission since the gastric juices of stomach does the same as stated above.

Testing is not needed. Below are the only risk for transmission in adults:

1. Unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse.
2. Sharing needles to inject drugs with other users.

Thank you for your answer. Is having a fissured tongue a risk fir hiv infection through oral sex?
Sorry to ask again, but I have a follow up question. Within 3 weeks of the potential exposure I developed a sore throat for a few days. Around a month I noticed what could be a lymph node in the groin (no pain and it went away). Recently, another one in my neck (I was able to pretty much drain this one, so I’m not sure if it was something like an abscess. I am still feeling this one, a lot more smaller and attached to the skin). Also, my elbows started popping a lot, no pain, but I’m not sure if this can be considered join pains.

I don’t have mouth sores, but a fissured tongue, as I said. Are these “cracks” considered a weak point to access the body?

Should I be worried?
Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  ( penis which is not a risk for hiv.) No worries, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the worst that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.

Your "follow-up" question is just a variation of your previous questions about oral, all of which are just wasting your time, because the advice can't change. Time to stop thinking about this non-event and move on to your normal life because you have a lifetime ahead of you and every moment should be treasured instead of wasted.
