Possible Exposure To HIV After Oral Sex?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask, last week I “received” oral sex from a man (unknown hiv status) for a few minutes, after that tb2 he threw out saliva and saw a lot of blood mixed with saliva, immediately I stopped the activity u0026amp; I see no blood on my penis. What I want to ask is, is there any blood from the injured gum that is at great risk of transmitting HIV to my body? Remember the penis also includes mucus membrane tissue. Are there any cases that have been reported that are similar to the events that I experienced? Explanation please. Thank you!
Good evening, thanks for the question
Oral sex behavior is known to transmit the HIV virus with a relatively low risk of transmission. However, there are several conditions that can increase the risk of transmission of the HIV virus through oral sex, including:
1. Individuals with gum sores or bleeding in the mouth are more at risk of becoming infected or transmitting the HIV virus during oral sex.
2. Ejaculation in the mouth during oral sex.
3. Oral sex with individuals who are clearly infected with HIV.
4. Oral sex with individuals with high viral load.
In this case the risk will be greater than having oral sex with a good oral health history. If you are in doubt, you should check the VCT to make sure. Going forward, it is important not to have risky sex or to use condoms to reduce the risk of transmission.
That's all, hope you can help.
