Good evening, I want to ask. Such as there are cases of couples A and B having sex. However, person A is a person with HIV but he has been taking antiretroviral treatment and the HIV virus is not detected. If person B drinks / swallows sperm from person A who is HIV positive with an undetectable virus, can he / she still be infected with HIV? What are the risks? Is the risk of transmission high or small? thank you

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically the risk of HIV transmission through oral sex can be said to be very low (the lowest compared to anal sex or vaginal sex). Insertive partners (people who insert a penis) the risk of contracting HIV is close to 0%, while receptive partners (people who enter) the risk of contracting HIV is between 0-0.04% (very small too). Transmission of receptive parters can occur if there are sores in the mouth during sexual intercourse.


HIV sufferers who have taken ARVs to the level of the virus are not detected are also known to not transmit HIV again. Therefore in the simulation of the case you mentioned, the possibility of transmission of HIV to the person who swallowed the sperm is virtually non-existent.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
