A guy gave me oral sex. I'm a female. Is there anything I can catch that way?

What's in his mouth: Although the possibility that you "can catch anything that way" is remote and the risk of oro-vaginal transmission of an infectious agent may be relatively small, some times, the mouth, lips, tongue, gums, oropharynx...can harbor a wide variety of microorganisms (viruses like herpes, some human papilloma viruses; fungi like monilia; bacterias like streps...etc). ...Read more

Can you catch trichamonis from oral sex?

Can you catch trichamonis from oral sex?

Probably not: Trichomonas is strictly a genital parasite. Nobody has ever done research to see if it can be carried in the oral cavity, but probably it doesn't happen. In my 40+ years in the STD business, I have never seen or heard of a patient who seemed to have acquired trich, either genital or oral, through oral sex. ...Read more

Dating girlfriend for 11 months & never caught type 1 herpes from kissing her. Just received oral sex, can I get herpes? She's never shown any signs.

Wrong question: First: most people your age already have herpes type 1 but have no symptoms. Second, many people have type 2. Some have symptoms, some do not. Why are you concerned about catching herpes from this person? Does she have any symptoms? If you already have either or both types you cannot catch it because you already have it. A blood test can determine if a person has one of these viruses. ...Read more

Maybe: Oral herpes is caused by herpes type 1 most commonly. It can be transmitted to the genital region through oral sex. I would say that there would normally be a at least a few days of "incubation" of the virus before you would have symptoms. So I f you had symptoms immediately, then it might be that the virus was already present. Ask him if he has ever had a cold sore. ...Read more

Recently been on boys holiday and oral Sex with condom from African street worker. And worried be caught AIDS and thinking what if the condom split?

You must be worried!: ...as well you should be. You can be somewhat reassured if you didn't see the condom break...it probably didn't. 4th generation HIV antibody/antigen tests are considered accurate at 2 to 6 weeks after exposure. You should get one. If another test is negative at 3 months, you can breath a sigh of relief. I hope this scare will permanently prevent you from pursuing this HIGH risk behavior. Stay well! ...Read more

See your ENT doctor where he/she will perform an endoscopy to confirm the cause of your symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

My throat has been dry and a bit sore for 2 weeks. Slight blood in the mornings. It started after unprotected, rough oral sex. I'm worried I might have caught an std/throat cancer? It's dry/bit sore.

Get tested: If you have had unprotected oral sex, then there is a real possibility of a STD. You should definitely be tested. Don't worry about throat cancer which is extremely unlikely in a woman your age. It is most likely related to the sex, but even very rough oral sex should not cause soreness that lasts for 2 weeks. Get checked, get treatment if needed, feel safe, protect yourself in the future. ...Read more

Is it possible to catch hiv through oral sex? I got tested 4 weeks after and it came back negative. Should I still be concerned? I haven't been able to eat or sleep I am so worried

Below: Here is the latest information from CDC
And get retested in 6 months.
Even though oral sex carries a lower risk of HIV transmission than other sexual activities, the risk is not zero. It is difficult to measure the exact risk because people who practice oral sex may also practice other forms of sex during the same encounter. When transmission occurs, it may be the result of oral sex or other, riskier sexual activities, such as anal or vaginal sex.

If the person receiving oral sex has HIV, their blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, or vaginal fluid may contain the virus. If the person performing oral sex has HIV, blood from their mouth may enter the body of the person receiving oral sex through the lining of the urethra (the opening at the tip of the penis), vagina, cervix, or anus, or through cuts and sores.

Several factors may increase the risk of HIV transmission through oral sex, including oral ulcers, bleeding gums, genital sores, and the presence of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). ...Read more
