Why is Oral Sex on Woman - No Risk
Why is oral sex on a woman safe/ low risk?

Have asked this question on another thread but it would help me relax/ understand if I knew more, please.

---------

Hi

Could you please check out my post at

* "Oral Sex Risks with poor dental hygiene"
http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/479192

I understand that oral sex on woman is low/ no risk but i did this with practically an open wound in my mouth as I said earlier.


Now at the time I performed oral sex, I had an open tooth - only temporarily covered with cotton wool. How stupid is that?

Am I still ok, because there is little HIV in the womans vaginal secretions (if she was positive)?

Or, am I at risk because of bad hygiene, taking course of anti-biotics which is destroying my natural mouths defences etc etc

In any case am going to have the "'Early' HIV-1 Proviral Test.

But would really appreciate some clarification as to why I should be relaxed about oral sex - particulary in my situation.

Many thanks.

Because saliva has inhibiting properties in it that inhibits HIV. The mouth is a hostel place for HIV.

Thanks very much but is the mouth's saliva still going to protect me, if I have a tooth thats open with the pulp exposed (under a layer of cotton wool covering)

Am worried that left me exposed after my stupidity.

Thats what I am worried about given the unusual situation?

Cheers.
