I am concerned about STD exposure for a male receiving unprotected oral sex and for performing unprotected oral sex on a female. I understand there is no HIV risk. What is the risk for other STDs? Thanks.
less than 5% of folks have chlamydia orally so odds are you aren't going to contract it from receiving oral sex. it's certainly nothing that is easily transmitted through oral.
we never try to scare folks needlessly around here. You will find post after post after post by Dr Hook, and Dr Handsfield, both experts in the field of std's saying that the risk of any std from oral sex is very low in general. This info is backed in a multitude of studies on pubmed.gov also.
Could you make clearer what you mean by less than 5% have chlamydia orally? Also would not the risk from receiving unprotected oral from a sex worker be much greater than the general population? What about the risk for gonorrhea and syphilis?
I had oral sex that i performed on a female i just met> It was 5 days ago. I have no symptoms. I did not see any signs of abnomalities. We did have interocurse but i am sure the condom did not fail or malfuction. What risk to i run of std orally.
