Oral Sex
      #248017 - 10/16/09 12:34 AM

hey guys, i donīt know if someone has posted it before, but anyway, i would like to ask you guys who are + how do you deal with oral sex in a non-stable relationship. for example, someone you just met and decided to get laid with, usually no one uses condom for oral sex. i usually get pretty worried that i would infect someone with that. i have tried a few times to use it but it looks to weird that most part of the time i just take the risk
please tell me how you deal with that...

I work in a STD clinic and we tell our clients that oral sex is a great way for harm reduction. If someone preforms oral on someone who is HIV+ the chances of infection are very low. If you get a fluid in your mouth you spit or swallow. If you spit the virus is not there to infect you, if you swallow, the acid in your stomach will kill the virus.

With that said the risk is if you have a open sore in your mouth, if you just flossed or brushed your teeth, this can cause a potential risk.

A person performing oral is at a greater risk for a STD of the throat than of becoming infected with HIV.

The chances that you are going to pass HIV to other people is very low. Specially if you are on meds and have undetectable viral load

Hey there,

I'm living proof that the virus can be transmitted by receiving oral sex. I had read everything saying that oral sex was "very low risk" and had never had anal sex before (either protected or unprotected) and lo and behold I got infected. My HIV doc told me that it happens much more often than publicized because even the tiniest microgram of blood can transmit to either the gums on the giver or the mucus membrane on the receiver.

Oral may be low risk according to stats, but it certainly isn't "no risk". Please don't risk transferring the virus unless the other person knows your status. Sorry to be a downer, but this is how I caught it so I know first hand it happens.
