DrOAB :

Hello. In receiving oral sex, you are generally exposed to saliva alone, which does NOT transmit HIV. Even with the possibility of blood-tainted saliva (for example, due to bleeding gums), there has been NO documented case of HIV infection via this fluid. Clinical evidence suggests that low level of HIV in saliva and HIV-inactivating agent(s) in saliva act as barriers to transmission via saliva exposure.

Hi there.

Thank you for your question.

I will be helping you out with your queries.

There have been some case reports of transmission via oral sex but those have been RARE to say the least. Here is a link that you can read which also gives you references to the fact that there have been case reports of oral transmission of HIV:

Here is what the CDC has to say about oral sex and HIV transmission:
