Receptive Oral Sex risk, lost and stressed!!!!

I had a brief encounter on which performed oral sex 5-10 minutes, maybe less, on an african-american TS escort, I felt no pre-cum and after she came outside my mouth... slightly after I performed the same oral for another 5 minutes or so in which I felt the taste of semen in the mouth for which I started getting worried and little after I stopped and left... kept on making saliva and spitting after on the way back....... the same day i brushed my teeth in the morning without any blood or abrasions or anything, same thing hours after the event, but a couple of days before I had some bleeding gums...
After I called the escort and she claims to be negative, that she had been tested two months before... nevertheless, when if I can see the results she refused and threaten to not call her again.  I am really stressed, been three nights without sleep... feel my heart racing, I am really worried....
What are my changes of getting HIV from this?
I called the local std office and they offer ab-ag testing, but i need to go for counseling, how soon can i get a reassuring test?
How effective is the test at 2 weeks?

I would greatly appreciate any answers... thank you in advance for your help... it is a blessing to have you all here.

You didn't have an exposure. HIV is not transmitted by oral sex.

Teak, thank you for your quick response
With all the respect and please have patience with me,  I am concerned as the CDC says otherwise, this is the government center for disease and control prevention:
http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/risk/behavior/oralsex.html
"numerous studies have demonstrated that oral sex can result in the transmission of HIV... "

Can you tell me what about my event does not result in exposure?

Thank you

There is no debate (among experts) about the HIV risks associated with oral sex. The risk is so low that almost nobody who cares for HIV infected patients has ever had a patient believed to have been infected that way. Among experts, it's a semantic issue about using terms like "no risk" and "very low risk". There is no difference between my or Dr. Hook's use of "low risk" and other experts' "no risk".
DR. HANSFIELD

"And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Please educate yourself about the real risks. If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs. " DR HANSFIELD

"I am sure you can find lots of people who believe that HIV is transmitted by oral sex, but you will not find scientific data to support this unrealistic concern..." DR HOOK

"HIV is not spread by touching, masturbation, oral sex or condom protected sex."- DR. HOOK

in the public HIV Prevention forum of MedHelp, TEAK and the other moderators maintain that oral sex in all forms is a zero risk activity. Would you agree with this assessment?
I TOTALLY AGREE / DR GARCIA
"HIV is not spread by masturbation, through oral sex, through kissing or other casual contact." Dr. Hook
"The observation on thousands and thousands of observations is that HIV is not spread by oral sex (of any sort)." DR HOOK
"I would not say your risk ,if he had HIV is "slim to none"- that's too high.  I would say they are effectively zero.  How much of his ejaculate or other genital  secretions you may have swallowed makes no difference.  EWH "
"As far as HIV is concerned, there is no known risk of getting HIV from performing oral sex on an infected partner, even if that person's genital secretions get into your eyes or if you swallow." Dr.Hook
HIV is not spread by oral sex, giving or receiving, even if sores, gum disease or blood is present
DR HOOK
The fact is that there are no cases in which HIV has been proven to be transmitted by oral sex, including fellatio..  EWH

And to clarify, it is this site's stance, based on studies and our own MedHelp experts (all of whom are world-renowned for their work in this field), that oral sex carries no risk for HIV.

Teak, I certainly appreciate your response, and I appreciate the work you are doing, you are giving almost real-time support to thousands... regarding your references and your stance, I see it used across the site, at the same time, I see everywhere else claiming oral sex is risky, low risk, but definitely with risk, with documented cases of transmission this way and it is tormenting and confusing, as much as I want to only believe your responses...

Teak, one final question if you dont mind, how accurate is an ab-ag testing at two weeks?
Avatar universal
There is no need to discuss testing, you never had an exposure.
Avatar universal
Even then, how conclusive is an ab-ag test at 2.5 weeks?
thanks
