HIV/STD from breast sucking

Welcome to our Forum.  I'll be happy to answer your question- it is a question that we have answered many times in the past.  Unless there was an obvious, visible sore or lesion on the woman's breast, there is no risk at all for any STD, including HIV from sucking a woman's breast. This is true whether or not there is milk or any other secretion from the breast.  

Dr. Edward W.Hook,  
                               please if you clear this "Unless there was an obvious, visible sore or lesion on the woman's breast, there is no risk at all for any STD, including HIV from sucking a woman's breast". so, if the person sucks on breasts that have sores/liasons, will he contract any disease because you said that is zero risk.

Please clarify this.
Thank you.

no, i'm a new user. I was reading this answered posted by someone and came across this line." Unless there was an obvious, visible sore or lesion on the woman's breast, there is no risk at all for any STD, including HIV from sucking a woman's breast. This is true whether or not there is milk or any other secretion from the breast.   "

I don't know how do I interpret this.

I mean if I suck on woman's breast that has liasons or sores and if I licked on that liason , will I contract anything.

Please help.

Unless there was an obvious, visible sore or lesion on the woman's breast, there is no risk at all for any STD, including HIV from sucking a woman's breast. what does it mean?

Does it mean that if a woman has liason or sore on her breasts and if a man sucks those breasts and her nipples, can he contract any STD/HIV?

Sucking breasts is not an HIV concern even with a obvious, visible sore or lesion on the woman's breast.

STD questions should be posted in the STD forum.

We can't speak for Dr. Hook. Post a question in the Expert forum and ask Dr. Hook what he meant. All we can tell you that sucking breasts is not a risk for HIV under any circumstance.
