Hello, I´m Dr. Rubio

Welcome a JustAnswer and thank you for your question.

Please give me a minute to review your question.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

There is little or no risk of contracting or transmitting HIV through oral sex.
For HIV-negative people, the chances of getting HIV from having oral sex with an HIV-positive person are extremely low.

Although the risk of HIV transmission through oral sex is low, several factors can increase that risk, including oral contact with menstrual blood, the presence of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and bleeding gums or sores on the mouth, vagina, or penis.

For this type of infection to occur there must be a contact with blood that comes out of the person and also the person who performs oral sex has important oral lesions that are also bleeding, so it is very difficult to occur.

Thank you so much. If the oral sex was 2 days ago would pep be recommended. There was no open sores or bleeding in my mouth. Also, there may have been a bit of semen that was in my mouth but most was not and the bit that was in mouth was spit out. How likely is hiv transmission to me?

is almost nil, as I reiterate, it is necessary that you have evident bleeding, since the mouths due to their amount of enzymes generate a hostile environment for the HIV virus. Therefore, you should have seen bleeding and also have an injury that was also very injured or bleeding,
I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Thanks. and last question. what if it was deep throat, and a possibility of pre-cum or some semen getting inside of throat? you have been so helpful Dr. Villegas

You don't have to worry either, because the gastric acids will eliminate the virus.

You have nothing to worry about. But take care next time and don't expose yourself to people you don't know.
