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. I believe your new infection of the worms is causing the changes in your immune system changes. I would continue to work with your health care provider to get these worms taken care and I believe you will see your immune system regain it's health.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
