oral sex and hiv?
Apr 24, 2000

I received oral sex twice without using a condom, but i used a condom when having vaginal sex and when performing oral sex, should i be worried about hiv transmission, how high is my risk?

Response from Dr. Reznik

What you have described is a very low risk encounter. The recent evidence of oral transmission showed that those performing oral intercourse were at risk for sero-conversion, not the receiving participant. Does this mean there is no risk involved? No. There are instances where a recipient of oral intercourse would be at risk, such as if there were open sores on the genitalia, and blood in the oral cavity.

Take care,

DR
