oral sex

Jul 4, 2004

Hello Is it possible to get std's from oral sex?


Response from Dr. Frascino


Yes. In fact, there are different levels of risk, depending on the STD and type of oral sex. For instance, STDs that cause sores or blisters, like syphilis and herpes, are easy to get from all types of oral sex getting or giving! HIV, on the other hand, is not easy to get from any kind of oral sex. For additional details, just check the archives.

Stay well.
