No risk: HIV is virtually 100% prevented by correct and consistent condom use for vaginal or anal sex. Contrary to popular beliefs, hepatitis C isn't sexually transmitted at all, except in gay men through traumatic (potentially bloody) rectal sexual practices.

Accumulating definitive data is obviously difficult, but no evidence that cunnilingus does transmit this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
