A question for relief

Jul 1, 2013

Hello Dr. Shannon. My question may sound incorrect but would you allow your partner to perform unprotected oral sex on you? Just to know my risks..thank you

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Yes I would and yes we do! My viral load is undetectable which decreases the risk of HIV transmission. We are also aware of cuts or sores on both of us that would increase the risk some, but we do know that oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
