HIV From Oral Sex?
Dec 17, 2006

Is it possible to contract HIV though Oral sex, male/female?

Response from Dr. Wohl

Yes. There is an ago old debate about the likelihood and certainly there are factors (viral load of the person with HIV, the susceptibility of the person without HIV infection, sores on the genitals/in the mouth) that can influence this risk; but, it is possible.
