Response from Ms. Southall

HI All of the encounters you have told me about carry extremely low risk to no risk. It is even reasonable to state that for the person receiving oral sex (that is on whom oral sex is being performed) the risk of acquisition of the virus is practically zero. For the person placing his or her mouth on someone else's genitals, the risk may be slightly higher but still very very low. Theoretically, obvious cuts, wounds, sores, or infections in the mouth could raise this risk. But relatively speaking this is still considered to be a low-risk sexual activity as the mouth is not a hospitable place for the HIV virus. If your symptoms continue I would recommend following up with your health care professional because there are other sexually transmitted infections that can be transmitted through oral sex.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
