I have a question about HIV transmission. I had a mucocele removed from my lower lip 5 weeks ago and now have a tiny scar and scar tissue in my lip. I don't know for sure if it is completely healed or not. I know oral transmission of HIV is very low risk but I am wondering if there is increased risk from this scenario during oral sex with another man. Thank you so much.
YOU SHOULD AVOID ACTIVE ORAL WITH EJACULATION IN YOUR MOUTH AS LONG AS IT IS NOT HEALED. IF IT IS HEALED YOU HAVE NO RISK. SOME EXPERTS ALSO SAY THAT ORAL IS NEVER A RISK. HOWEVER OTHER EXPERTS SAY THT ITS A RIK AFTER THINGS LIKE TOOTH SURGERY AND EJACULATION IN THE MOUTH
