Common Questions and Answers about Hiv orally transmitted study

hiv

Avatar n tn Oral is extremely low risk and the CDC hasn't conclusively documented a case of orally transmitted HIV. In the future, picking up hitchhikers and allowing them to perform oral sex on you and then get off in your car is probably not he best idea, from both a medical and physical safety point of view.

Avatar f tn It seemed that this study was was saying that 6 of the 7 monkeys got infected orally that way. Is there anything more you know on this study that you can tell me? Is it accurate? And if so, why do most doctors say that oral sex is low to no risk? That's all I am trying to understand. Because my only exposure was by oral sex (giving to a male, with pre-ejaculate, but no ejaculation). I am a female, and I tried to read the other female cases, but this study scared the be-Jesus out of me!
Avatar m tn I am a little puzzled when you say that HIV cannot be transmitted through small cuts and bleeding gums even with semen, because I have read doctors' comments online and HIV help websites that HIV can be transmitted orally through this kind of situation. Could you please advise me further on this? I don't mean to ask for the sake of asking, but I am genuinely puzzled by the different stances taken. I would appreciate it a lot..thank you..
Avatar n tn Recent research presented at the 7th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in February of 2000 concluded that 8 of 122 cases in an HIV-transmission study were possibly attributable to oral sex, which implies that although going down (giving oral sex) on a man is much lower in risk than other sexual behaviors, there's still a possibility for transmission.
Avatar n tn and occasional cases of nongonococcal urethritis in men--which, when to to oral bacteria, probably isn't a serious health problem for either the guy or his future sex partners. Syphilis can be transmitted orally, but it's such a rare infection in most people that it usually isn't a serious concern. (Gay men with multiple partners are an exception.) HIV is too low a risk to worry about.
Avatar f tn I didn't know of the symptoms of HIV ( be it late or early) came all at once or separately. Nor was I sure if HIV could be transmitted orally; as both of my instances were oral one in 2003 and 2008. Ive not had any risky sex, but have been in panic for years. Recently I started this sneeZing every morning and I went to the EnT Tuesday he said it was sinus, but I've never had sinus problems. He said that my esophagus was irritated and slightly swollen.
Avatar m tn Something else I raed suggested that for MSM, 2-5% of new HIV infections in the UK were transmitted orally. Risk is definitely low though and I can't find any specific data on cunnilingus. Immunol Rev. 2013 Jul;254(1):34-53. doi: 10.1111/imr.12078.

Avatar n tn 3) If you do believe the study also relates to hsv-1, then why do studies in the past not show an increase risk of hiv with genital hsv-1 patients. And finally, why isn't hiv transmitted through oral sex (an extremely rare occurence apparently) when so many people have oral hsv-1. With active and healed oral sores, wouldn't there be so many of these immune cells around for the hiv to get into. But you so rarely hear of a case of someone getting hiv through oral sex.

Avatar m tn I have also read many times that contracting HSV-2 orally is somewhat rare, and that even if it is contracted, once the outbreak goes away, a second outbreak usually never occurs. And I guess this is because HSV-2 prefers the genitals instead of the mouth??? Anyway, my first question is if I take 500 mg of Valtrex daily and my girlfriend performs unprotected fellatio on me only a couple of times per month, wouldn't the chances of her contracting HSV-2 orally be something of a long shot?
Avatar m tn HIV have zero risk orally
Avatar f tn i am sneezing, my lymph nodes are swollen and i have a general sense of feeling a little off.. Do you think i have hiv? what are the chances of getting it orally? no egaculate in mouth only precum..im worried though because some times my gums bleed when i brush my teeth. can hiv get in that way or do your gums heal? is that considered an open wound? im freaking out!
Avatar m tn Could you explain it to me more technically, instead of "No, no risk"? Its making me feel good that you are all confident that i am most likely safe. but from my own standpoint, i i have gingivitis and my "good bacteria" flora in my mouth is not so good. im severely lacking in dental hygiene and at the time i was taking control of that. i had my cavities filled, which was supposed to raise the "good bacteria", and balanced acid in my saliva.
Avatar n tn You also wouldn't have any HIV symptoms this fast, and nothing you are saying is ringing any HIV bells for me, and you also used a condom. HIV is not transmitted vial oral contact, including rimming. All of your tests are negative, and while I don't think this is an std, your doctor said he tested you for everything "major that could kill you".
101028 tn?1419606604 gov/pubmed/20402591 Our own Dr Hook from the std expert forum co authored this study. Turns out the 1 time dose of azithromycin most of us are given for chlamydia treatment is also covering syphilis which is very good news since we can't test for syphilis as early as chlamydia and gonorrhea. For those who have a fear of needles this is also good news :) J Infect Dis. 2010 Jun 1;201(11):1729-35.

Avatar m tn Dr Hook and Dr Handsfield, Dr Hook just re-assured me yesterday about the essentially "one-in-million" chances of getting infected with HIV from being sucked orally. But it's amazing how obsessed I've become in checking all possible Internet sources I can find for further assurances.
Avatar n tn Prevalence and Presentation of Oral STIs The STIs that can be transmitted orally include HIV, human papillomavirus, hepatitis B, herpes simplex virus, oral condylomata acuminata, gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia. Each year an estimated 11.5 million people under the age of 25 years acquire an STI (DiClemente & Crosby, 2006), although we do not know how many of these infections are acquired through oral sex.

Avatar m tn hi, you don't have an hiv risk here as you did not do any unprotected penetrative sex, but other stds can be transmitted orally. perhaps you have some urinary infection that is causing your prostate issues - you need to get that checked out. again, you have no hiv risk, so put that out of your mind. when you do go to get an std panel, it is always worth doing the full check up, i hope this answers your question.

Avatar m tn Handsfield and I are quoted accurately there. There are no scientifically proven cases in which HIV has been transmitted by oral sex. If you have found such reports on the internet, they are not scientifically credible. As for your specific questions: 1. See above. Receipt of oral sex does not put you at risk for HIV. 2. Oral chlamydia is not non-existent, it is very rare however. You may have been unlucky. 3. See above. I suppose it could have but this would not be likely. 4.

Avatar n tn Are those the same guys that got HIV orally? ))) Anyway, I don't know why Dr. H. says what he says. Apparently he published some study on this, finding no evidence of chlamydia in people's throats. But he could be mistaken, I guess.
Avatar n tn I know I read recently in a study that showed that 25% of the folks in the study also had hsv1 orally ( sorry - looked thru the pile here but couldn't find it to cite it - been trying to remember which article it was I read that in ). Even in the lafferty study from 1987 which I know you are familiar with 5 out of th 12 patients who were diagnosed with hsv1 genitally later on had oral-labial reccurences.
Avatar n tn Regardless of whether it's HSV-1 or HSV-2 or located genitally or orally (you can have either type in either location), you'd be at an increased risk for HIV transmission ONLY if you had open sores at the time of exposure... ...and I'm hoping that you wouldn't be having sex with someone, protected or otherwise, during an active outbreak.
Avatar f tn Hi First of all you don't have HIV..thats for 200%. As far as STDs are concerned, there are few STDs like Gonorhea and Chlmydia which can spread due to ORAL sex..but very rarely.. Good things is that these are easily curable via antibiotics..But for your case..as this is now about 5-6 years..you can eliminate these risks as well.. So chill and move on.. For STD specific you can post at STD community in MEDHELP.
