What is the likelihood of HIV transmission or any other STD

Customer Question

What is the likelihood of HIV transmission or any other STD transmission from male receptive oral sex. If I am a male and I receive oral sex, how likely is an STD transmitted if there are no oral sores or cuts visible in either person?

There is little to no risk of getting or transmitting HIV from oral sex.

The odds may be between 1 in 1000 to 1 in 10,000.

Theoretically speaking it may be possible to get certain STIs on the penis from receiving oral sex from a partner with a mouth or throat infection.

So small risk of transmission of STD like herpes,HPV etc are present if the female has throat or mouth infection.

Getting tested as per window period is a good option for peace of mind.

I hope this helps
