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. With that being said, the word "can" suggests a theoretic possibility that many find difficult to dismiss. Whenever discussing HIV risk, it is important to differentiate between a theoretic and documented risk. A documented risk is based on the actual number of cases to which HIV can be directly attributed to an act of oral sex.

What Is the Risk of HIV from Oral Sex?

Can Someone Get HIV Through Oral Sex?

HIV infects humans and causes damage by taking over cells in the immune system—the part of the body that usually works to fight off germs, bacteria and disease. When that happens, the body may not be able to fight off certain types of illnesses or cancers. If the infection is not detected and treated, the immune system gradually weakens and AIDS develops. HIV and AIDS are terms that are often used together, and sometimes are used interchangeably, though they are not the same thing. If you are worried about a recent potential exposure, go to the emergency room and ask for PEP post-exposure prophylaxis as soon as you can. Effectiveness is increased the earlier PEP is begun after the exposure. You can have HIV and not have any symptoms, and some HIV tests will not show a positive result for as long as three months after infection.

Though 38 million people are living with human immunodeficiency virus HIV , there's still stigma and a lot of misinformation about how it's spread. These include blood, vaginal fluids, semen and pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, and breast milk. The transmission occurs when the HIV from the fluids gets into the bloodstream through open cuts or wounds, direct injection, or by coming in contact with a mucous membrane in the mouth, vagina, tip of the penis, or rectum.
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.
