Am I at risk if my penis suffered a cut during a sexual encounter?

Hi, I had oral sex with a man for a brief moment in the shower. And subsequently, I ejaculated, but I thrusted on his body too hard and suffered a cut on my frenulum. I understand that the chances of getting HIV infection is rather low in this scenario. But I would just like to reconfirm this and you be advising for Post Propholaxis Treatment? Thanks!

Expert advice:

Unprotected oral and anal sex, be it with or without ejaculation, with someone of unknown status will put you at risk for STIs and HIV. The risk of HIV transmission through unprotected sex increases if there is contact with body fluids such as semen, vaginal fluids and blood, with the presence of sores and broken skin. Condoms, when used correctly and consistently and where there is no breakage or leakage, provide effective protection against STI and HIV.

The Post Exposure Prophylaxis(PEP) - antiviral drugs, may be taken within 72 hours after possible exposure. You can refer to the main page in our website for more information about the details. This is only available at certain institution like the DSC Clinic. The doctor will need to discuss the details with you.

Total crap! Such responses just spread fear and ignorance and reflect the old religious taboo against actually having a good time. Read his original posting. He said he ejaculated and thrust onto the body of his partner. Now tell me how he at risk of infection from anything except all those nasty diseases that live on the skin and in sweat (i.e. zero for HIV and very low for anything else)??? Guys all over the world are having contact with other guys' bodies.... even oral sex is very very low risk for hiv.
