Our expert says:
HIV is spread by contact of body fluids from an infected person. oral sex is a safer sexual act as the HIV Virus needs access to the bloodstrem to infect a person. thus oral sex is a safer option than penetrative sex. however, you may have microscopic cuts in your gums that would act as a transmission route for the virus.
the best is to test for the virus. the test can be accepted as 100% accurate but ebven if you test negative at first, you may need to test again within 6 weeks as it takes 6 weeks for the virus to 'register' in the body.
