im poz can a give hiv by giving head

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. As long as there are no sores or openings on either participant then it is considered a safer sexual encounter. I'm positive and when giving my husband oral I make sure that I haven't just brushed my teeth or had dental work done and I make sure he doesn't have any sores or openings and then we proceed. :)

Be well and stay safe and healthy, Shannon
