Male HIV positive for 4yrs now undetected, taking meds regularly. My question is since the virus doesn't live in the mouth only antibodies from what I'm told then how safe or unsafe is it to have oral with someone that is negative even if you've gone to the doctor with them to have them tested and you've seen the results? Can you have oral with that person as long as they don't go down me unless I'm wearing protection? Basically can I give someone that is HIV neg oral sex without protection?
I like giving oral sex to women. I want to be sure that I can do that without having to have them use protection if they are negative since the virus doesn't live in my mouth unless I'm bleeding or have a sore in or on my mouth. I've been trying to get a bonified answer to this question since I've been diagnosed. Can't seem to find one.
Catching HIV from Oral sex is possible and there are example cases,however it is extremely rare.
Oral hygiene is also very important for everyone positive or not,bleeding gums,bad oral hygiene,oral thrush and STD throat infections can all open the door to HIV.
