Possible Transmission Of HIV / AIDS Through Oral Sex?
Greetings, r nSy would like to ask, can HIV be transmitted if you ingest sperm / pre-ejaculatory fluids? R n r nI recently did a blood donation, the employee said that my blood has been checked and can be donated. Does that mean I am HIV-free even though I had a risky relationship a month before? R n r nThank you
HIV or Human Immunodeficiency Virus is a virus that causes HIV / AIDS which causes a decrease in the human immune system to a dangerous / deadly level. This disease can be transmitted by various things, namely:
Through sexual activity, either oral, anal or vaginal. Through blood transfusions or the use of unsterile injection equipment. Through mother to baby, during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding, etc. The possibility of HIV / AIDS transmission through oral sex (swallowing sperm) is generally very small. This is because after the sperm is swallowed and enters the stomach, there will be liquid disinfection due to exposure to stomach acid so that the virus cannot infect because the virus must be able to enter the bloodstream to infect someone. However, transmission can still occur if there are sores on the lips, mouth or throat, the virus can more easily enter the bloodstream.
If you have done risky activities and are not sure about your health condition, you should consult directly with your doctor regarding this condition in order to get further treatment according to your condition.
The World Health Organization (WHO / World Health Organization) and the Red Cross recommend that all donated blood be checked (blood donors) and this includes testing for HIV. However, you should still ask this directly at the place where you are donating blood in order to get the appropriate information.
