Oral sex and STDs

Oct 30, 2012

Dear Dr. I am male and I have a question about oral sex and STDs. Having Oral sex (giving oral to other male/sucking) What kind of STDs might be infected? and after how long should get tested?

Thank you so much

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Sucking a penis can be risky for STDs such as Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphilis, and Herpes. The risk for an STD like HIV is much lower!

We recommend for all sexually active people to be tested on a regular basis to help them know what their status is and keep themselves and their partners safe.

Hope this helps!
