Oral sex after jaw implant surgery
Dec 6, 2012
About 3 months after I had had jaw implants surgery, I gave oral sex to a guy of unknown status. I wonder if this placed me at a greater risk, and if I should be more worried even though I had waited 3 months before engaging in any type of sexual acts. My question is whether I should be (reasonably) worried about (possible) exposure after this encounter in which my gums, although largely recovered, may not have been as they normally are.
Thanks very much.

If there are no open wounds inside your mouth, I would not think there would be any increased risk. DW
