Can oral sex invite HIV infection?

Dear Doctor, am aged 58. 30 days before, one of my friend came to my home (28, housewife with a child and husband, living in UAE for the last 2 years) and had a minor oral sex lasting for 10 minutes. We both are perfectly allright, healthwise i believe. But I am in a tension and really worried about what happened. Scared of any possible HIV with the girl (just a scary thought ). Pl give me an advice so that I will get rid of my tension.

Hello,

Oral sex is low risk in terms of HIV transmission. That means, you probably will not get HIV from giving or receiving oral sex.

Having cuts or sores in your mouth, gum disease, having a sexually-transmitted infection in your throat, or recent dental work increases your risk. If you are both healthy, there is nothing to be worried.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
