Oral Sex

Nov 29, 2014


Sorry for my bad english .

I am Brazilian and always use condoms . But never protected me performing cunnilingus .

I need to test ? Yes or no ?

Thank you and congratulations for the work .

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Using condoms regularly for penis-vagina sex is great at preventing the risk of getting/giving HIV!

For mouth-vagina sex (cunnilingus) the risk of getting HIV is very low. Although, it can be higher risk for other STDs.

That said, you fall in the category of sexually active, which means it's a good idea to get tested on a regular basis so that you're sure of your HIV/STD status.

Hope this helps,


Am I infected?
