oral sex with condoms?

Jan 7, 2003

Does giving a man oral sex with a condom without ejaculation warrant testing?

Response from Mr. Kull

Not really. Performing oral sex on a person without a condom poses a low-risk for transmission, and using a condom practically eliminates that risk for transmission. However, strictly speaking, you can never rule out the possibility of transmission when you engage in anal, vaginal, or oral sex with an HIV infected person. So ultimately the decision to test will be up to you.


Is late or no serocoversion a factor of advanced age?
