We do not see HIV being passed when receiving oral sex.
Have a look at our “Know your chances” web page, it provides information on your chances of getting or passing an STI depending on how you are having sex.
It is possible that some sexually transmitted infections (STI) like gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, syphilis and HPV can be passed when receiving oral sex.
It is also common for people not to get any symptoms when they get an STI, given this we recommend STI testing, how often really depends on your situation. Have a look at our page on when to test.
