Can you get aids from oral sex?
Mar 12, 2002

I am concerned about the likelyhood of getting Aids fro Oral sex. I have shared this experience with several sex partners. Durring Intercourse I used protection. What is the likelyhood or probability of catching aids through this.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It is an unlikely way to get HIV, but not impossible according to a study that was done among gay men in San Francisco and reported at a meeting last year. Better safe than sorry-- use a condom.
