Recieving Oral Sex
Oct 15, 2006
My fiance recently was givin oral sex by this girl he did not know, and my sister told me that she has AIDS. is it possible to get HIV/AIDS from recieving oral sex? If so, what is the possibility?
Response from Dr. Horwath
There are some reported cases of transmission of HIV by oral sex, but the risk is low. Viral concentrations in saliva are comparatively low. Transmission of HIV is more likely through vaginal or anal intercourse than through fellatio.
