Hi, and thanks for your question
We don’t typically see HIV passed from oral sex, and the risk to the person receiving oral sex is considered very low. We more commonly see gonorrhea and chlamydia or infections that are passed through skin-to-skin contact like herpes or syphilis being passed this way. We always recommend routine testing for all sexually transmitted infections (HIV, syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea) for any sexually active individual
Our clinic finder can help you locate a clinic near you for testing.
Also check out our Know Your Chances charts. They are sometimes useful in understanding which STIs are passed through different types of sexual contact.
Let us know if this does not answer your question or if you have any more questions or concerns.
