kissing and recieving oral sex
Nov 23, 2001


Would kissing and recieving oral sex be a risk in transmitting hepatitis? I have been told that these are not transmission routes for hiv(safe sex and transmission forum) but nobody ever mentions hepatitis.

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

Only if there is blood,or cuts or breaks of mucosa or skin,there may be a potential risk.

Peg intron or Pegasys?
Many Thanks!
