Can you get hiv if you just Taste just a little bit of cum and you one canker sore

Hi, That’s a good question. Although oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission, the risk increases if a person cums into a mouth where cuts or sores are present. Semen is one of the bodily fluids that carries HIV (along with blood, anal fluids, front hole or vaginal fluids and breast milk). For HIV to be transmitted, it requires one of these bodily fluids from a person living with HIV who is not on treatment to enter the bloodstream of a HIV negative person. A canker sore can be an entry point for HIV to enter your body. To answer your question, tasting a little bit of cum or having it in your mouth with a sore present poses a possible risk for HIV transmission. However, there a ways to greatly reduce this risk! By using an effective HIV prevention strategy such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) or undetectable viral load (UVL), you can greatly reduce the risk of HIV transmissions!

Can we get infected if we kiss the tip of the penis that has precum on it and it has been done for only one time and not more than that?

Hi, Thanks for your question. Oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission. Kissing the tip of a penis with precum on it would also be considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission. This risk may be increased if there are cuts or ulcers around your mouth, but even in these instances the risk is regarded as low. However, this may be different for the transmission of other STIs, which can easily be treatable. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to get tested for HIV and STIs 4 times a year with their doctor or local sexual health clinic.

Is it harmful for someone with aids to swallow cum after performing oral sex on someone without aids?

Hi, Thanks for your question. Oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmissions. However, this can be different for other STIs, which are easily treatable. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have routine sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. Also, HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that can be transmitted between people and weakens the immune system. People living with HIV who are not on effective treatment can have their immune systems damaged to a critical point which leads to AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which makes them more prone to other infections and cancers. People living with HIV don’t automatically have AIDS, and with the advancements in treatments, most people in Australia living with HIV will never develop AIDS. People living with HIV who are on effective treatment can suppress the level of HIV in their bodies to an ‘undetectable viral load’ (UVL). People who are HIV positive and sustaining a UVL live much healthier lives and cannot transmit HIV to another person. Along with condom and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), UVL is one of the most effective HIV prevention strategies.

Hi, Thanks for your question. HIV cannot be transmitted through kissing, and oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmissions. However, this can be different for other STIs, which are easily treatable. So we recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. Tests for HIV can have a window period of between 2 weeks to 3 months depending on the test. This is the period of time after any possible exposure to HIV for a reactive result to appear in the test. This means that your HIV tests at 6 months and 7 months sit outside of this window period, and that the negative results you received were conclusive. If you have continued to be sexually active, we recommend getting tested again.

I had a BJ from an escort this weekend. What are the odds of getting a HIV or std. For intercourse we used a condom

Hi, Thanks for your question. Oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmissions. However, this can be different for other STIs, which are easily treatable. When used correctly, condoms are highly effective at preventing HIV transmissions, and most STIs. However, there are some STIs that can still be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, and some STIs also show no symptoms. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have routine sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic.

Hi I had an erotic massage session with a sex worker. No anal, vaginal or oral sex was done. I only expected it to be a massage but towards the end she had spit on my dick head n used it as lubricant. I m quite concerned wthether saliva could contain hiv and travel into the urethra..any help would be great..thanks

Hi, Thanks for your question. Saliva is not one of the bodily fluids that carries HIV, which means that there was zero risk for HIV transmission in your case. HIV exists in blood, semen, vaginal or front hole fluids, rectal fluids and breast milk. HIV can be transmitted if one of these fluids from a person living with HIV who is not on effective treatment enters the bloodstream of a HIV negative person. You can read more about HIV on our website here: https://endinghiv.org.au/sti/hiv/ If you have more questions, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where a sexual health nurse can answer your questions over the phone.

if they gay came on my lips but sperm didnt go inside my mouth , is it dangerous and possible to get HIV?

Hi, Thanks for your question. Oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmissions. Even if semen entered your mouth, the risk for HIV transmissions would be very unlikely. The risk may increase if there are cuts or sores inside your mouth or if other STIs were present. However, you can reduce this risk to zero if an effective HIV prevention strategy was being used, which includes condoms, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) or undetectable viral load (UVL). Although the risk of HIV transmissions through oral sex is considered very low to no risk, this can be different for other STIs, such as gonorrhoea or chlamydia, which are easily treatable. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to get tested for HIV and STIs four times a year.
