Can HIV be contracted through protected oral sex?

Hi Doctor, Accidentally I was involved in oral sex with a female escort I had my condoms on but there was no protection when I was performing the oral sex. I am not sure on the HIV status of the person . What are the chances that I might have got infected it was for about 5 minites. I did not have any bleeding or liquid passed into me

Hello,

From your description, I am of the opinion that there are negligible reports of passing HIV through oral route in the medical literature. Saliva contains an enzyme that does prevent. So No need to worry. But one should always be wary of such risky behavior.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Ranjan, General & Family Physician
