Well here goes.... so about a month and a half ago I gave oral sex with a canker sore in my mouth to a man I didn't know.... he said he's clean of hiv?

Risky Behavior: Giving oral sex with an active oral lesion is not advisable for you or your partner.

Herpes is easily transmitted! ...Read more

Hey doctor I had oral sex with a guy yesterday. I have a canker sore below my lower lip and I sucked him. Can I get infected with HIV? Should I get te

Very low risk: HIV is almost never transmitted by oral sex. One estimate is one transmission for every 10, 000 penis-to-mouth exposures, i.e. giving oral to infected men once daily for 27 years before transmission might be likely. Oral sores might increase the risk, but the chance is already so low that it makes little difference. You should have asked him about HIV status before sex! Yes, you should be tested. ...Read more
