PLease answer this question

Jul 28, 2003

Hi! My name is G_____ and Im from Argentina. Ive been very worried these days because I had oral sex with a prostitute (she did a BJ) without using a condom. I know you are very busy but I would be very pleased if you told me what are the risks I was exposed to. Take care.

Response from Mr. Kull

If you read through the information here at The Body and in this forum on oral sex you'll see that there is no evidence to support transmission of HIV through contact with saliva. This is why we don't consider insertive oral sex (getting head, or a blow job) or kissing to be real risks for HIV transmission.


I am having a hard time with this, please help!
Dr. Bob please help clarify this!!!
