RISKS FROM PERFORMING ORAL SEX ON AN HIV POSITIVE PARTNER
However, it is always a good idea to talk to partners about your sexual practices and history. Though oral sex is considered "safer sex" and lower risk, everyone should have the knowledge to decide for themselves at what risk-level they are comfortable. Continuing to get tested for STDs including HIV infection in those at risk every three months is the best way to be fully informed when talking to partners—it will ease your mind and theirs. For more information on STD testing, visit http://SFCityClinic.org or http://STDTest.org for places in San Francisco or call the CDC National Hotline for services near you: 1-800-CDC-INFO.
