oral sex hiv risk

Aug 15, 2013

Hi, If a female had vaginal fluid in her mouth and she gave a blowjob to me without a condom. what are the risks of contracting hiv? Would her saliva inhibit hiv immediately?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

I would not be concerned in a situation like this.

HIV does not live well outside of the human body. Any virus that made its way into her mouth would be unlikely to infect someone else. In addition to that, her saliva would help inactivate the virus even quicker, making it unable to infect you.

In health,
