Can you get an STD from giving oral to a woman if so which ones did include. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

Very low risk: Cunnilingus (oral-vaginal contact) is very low risk for STDs, especially for the oral partner. In my 40 years in the STD business, I've never seen a patient who apparently acquired any STD by performing oral sex on a woman. In theory, you could get oral gonorrhea, herpes, syphilis, or HPV. No HIV risk. If no symptoms like oral sores or sore throat, you needn't worry and don't need testing. ...Read more
