HIV+ woman, undetectable-question about oral sex
May 19, 2004

I am HIV+ 5 years, newly single. I have met a man I would like to pursue a long-term relationship with. He is negative. I am undetectable, and we are wondering what his chances are of getting HIV from performing oral sex for me. If so, what are some ways we can pursue this act without putting him at risk?

Response from Dr. Remien

Please look for information about HIV transmission and risk on the forum titled "Safe Sex, HIV Prevention and Transmission." Chances are you will find answers there and if not, you can ask your question on that Forum.

Is this how I should "be" in my relationship?
shall I break the relationship?
