Dear STD Advice, I always use protection for intercourse, but never have for oral sex. Yet recently I heard of someone who got an STD from oral sex. Is that possible? ~ Orally Confused Dear Orally Confused, It is definitely possible to catch an STD simply from unprotected oral sex. In fact, several STDs can be transmitted via oral sex including herpes, syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. In some cases, HIV can also be transmitted during oral sex. Here's what the CDC says about that: It is possible for either partner to become infected with HIV through performing or receiving oral sex. There have been a few cases of HIV transmission from performing oral sex on a person infected with HIV. While no one knows exactly what the degree of risk is, evidence suggests that the risk is less than that of unprotected anal or vaginal sex. If the person performing oral sex has HIV, blood from their mouth may enter the body of the person receiving oral sex through > the lining of the urethra (the ... more

You can get an STD from any form of sex. STD's are passed from body fluids and an open sore on your penis would certainly be a way for something to pass to you. It is important whether you practice oral, vaginal or anal sex to use protection, namely a condom. A condom is the only form of protection that when used properly can prevent many types of STD's. However they will not prevent something like crabs which will be spread through body to body contact. What worries me is that you asked if it was just hiv. HIV while not an actual disease leads to AIDS and the complications of which can kill you. Besides for using protection the other way to minimize the transmission of STD's is to be in a stable relationship where you both remain monogamous. If you have multiple partners consider the fact that you are not only sleeping with that person but with basically everyone they have ever been with. The same is true for the person sleeping with you, you are placing that person at risk of ... more
