After more than 35 years of epidemiological and biomedical research, the question of whether you can get HIV from oral sex remains confusing. So let's start by separating hypotheticals from the hard facts and statistics. If asking can a person get HIV from oral sex, the honest answer would have to be possible but unlikely. For the most part, oral sex—either in terms of fellatio oral-penile , cunnilingus oral-vaginal , or anilingus oral-anal —is not an efficient route of HIV transmission. With that being said, the word "can" suggests a theoretic possibility that many find difficult to dismiss.
The risk of getting HIV through receiving oral sex that is, a partner's mouth on your genitals is very, very low. We can't say that there's zero risk, because there are a few cases of HIV infection in people who have no other known risk factors for HIV. Also, we can imagine a scenario where an HIV-infected person's mouth is bleeding when he or she is giving oral sex. This could increase the risk of infecting the partner. But, in general, becoming infected with HIV by receiving oral sex is probably a very rare occurrence. The risk of getting HIV through giving oral sex that is, your mouth on a partner's genitals is low compared with unprotected vaginal or anal sex, but there is some risk.
Many people find oral sex an intensely pleasurable experience. People use different terms to refer to oral sex including formal terms like fellatio and cunnilingus and slang terms like blow jobs and giving head. Usually oral sex means one person kissing, licking or sucking another person's genitals.
I have a question regarding transmission. I am HIV positive and have a low viral load under and am not yet on medication. I always use condoms for anal intercourse but my questions relate to oral sex.
