Oral sex with blood or oral ulcers

Jun 10, 2002

Dear Ryan,

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?


Response from Mr. Kull

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.


very concerned, please, please help
