Response from Dr. Wohl

Most studies have shown that catching HIV through oral sex is very very rare. However, there are reports of some people acquiring the virus this way.

Certainly there are other infections besides HIV that you can catch via oral sex including herpes simples virus (HSV) - which can cause painful mouth ulcers, syphilis and gonorrhea.

I recommend you go to a sexually transmitted diseases clinic or your doctor to have the mouth lesions examined. DW

starting treatment without a positive test
