Risk Of Contracting HIV
Jun 30, 2013
I am a male and received an unprotected oral sex from female. (I did not perform oral on her). Then had a protected vaginal sex and checked the condom that it did not break or slipped. How much risk is there that I contracted a hiv from this oral sex.
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi The risk of HIV transmission with oral sex is extremely low. 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.
Your risk is extremely low.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
