is the info old?
Jun 21, 2002
I have read that there has not been anyone infected through recieving oral sex and that testing is not needed even if the person comes down with symptoms mimicking ars if this was there only risk. Is this information up to date or is it old and maybe no longer correct?
Response from Mr. Kull
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have only documented cases of oral sex transmission among receptive partners (partners whose mouth was on an infected person's genitals). There is one questionable case of transmission to the insertive partner, where the receptive partner probably had blood in their mouth.
