|Oral sex with blood or oral ulcers
Jun 10, 2002
You are doing a great service in this forum here. I recently had received unprotected fellatio from a sex worker and now I am fearing that I might have got hiv. Can small traces of blood that are not visible in persons mouth or oral ulcers transmit hiv from an infected persons mouth to an uninfected persons penis?

There is no evidence that people get infected from receiving oral sex. According to the CDC, odds are theoretically increased if there is visible blood.
