Mumbai : The risk of spreading HIV through oral sex is less than that of vaginal or anal sex, but it cannot be said that the risk of STD or HIV in oral sex is very low or absolutely low. According to one report, the transmission rate of oral sex is 0–4 in 10,000 cases. However, you can get HIV from having oral sex with a man or woman who is positive.

HIV virus is transmitted between both partners when one person’s fluid comes in contact with another person’s bloodstream. This contact is caused by a cut on the skin, the vagina, rectum, forehead or open part of the penis. However, oral sex involves the use of the mouth and tongue for stimulation or to arouse the partner, so there is no risk.

Even though the mouth, mucus and skin is cut or there is some kind of injury or if there is a wound or ulcer in the mouth or jaws, you can be infected with HIV virus despite being in an uninfected state. The risk of infection is reduced for both men and women only when the HIV-infected patient is being treated for 6 months.
