Oct 10, 2002

Ihave been HIVfor 5 years,and I have been sucking a straight man the First 3 years. Can he get Hiv from me? We are still very close,and worried. Thanks

Response from Mr. Kull

It is tremendously unlikely that you would transmit HIV to your partners by performing oral sex on them. HIV is not known to be transmitted through saliva: this is probably true because the saliva of HIV infected people contains little to no infectious HIV.

You should only avoid performing oral sex on your partner if you have visible blood present in your mouth.


Is this rash hiv related?
Transmission of HSV-2
