Sir are you certain that I had no risk?Ive read articles that are saying oral sex also posses a risk in HIV transmission.Im dying of waitng for 3 months to get my HIV test.And also do you think it would be ok if I would take it at an earlier than 3 months?Thank you
"And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Please educate yourself about the real risks. If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs. " DR HANSFIELD
"I am sure you can find lots of people who belive that HIV is transmitted by oral sex, but you will not find scientific data to support this unrealistic concern..." DR HOOK
"HIV is not spread by touching, masturbation, oral sex or condom protected sex."- DR. HOOK
in the public HIV Prevention forum of MedHelp, TEAK and the other moderators maintain that oral sex in all forms is a zero risk activity. Would you agree with this assessment?
I TOTALLY AGREE / DR GARCIA
"The observation on thousand and thousand of observations is that HIV is not spread by oral sex (of any sort)." DR HOOK
thank you for your answer.I realIy need that re assurance.No one to ask here in the Philippines.HIV/AIDS help group just tells me that I have a risk which they cannot tell how.All they tell me is anybody engages in un protected oral,vaginal and anal sex you have a risk.Thats why Im so afraid.This is the 1st time that I did it with someone else.I not gonna do it again.Thanks ang God bless
