Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Performing oral sex on a woman carries risk of HIV transmission for the partner (the person who is licking or sucking the vaginal area) because the infected vaginal fluids and blood can get into the mouth (which includes, but is not limited to, menstrual blood). Likewise, similar risk of HIV transmission during oral sex is present for the receptive partner (the person who is having her vagina licked or sucked) if infected blood from oral sores or bleeding gums comes in contact with vulvar or vaginal cuts or sores or vice-a-versa. Although the risk of HIV transmission during oral sex is said to be low as compared to vaginal and anal sex; however, there have been reports of cases of HIV transmission and STDs resulting from oral-vaginal sex.
Oral sex carries a risk for both HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases like HIV and some STDs that cannot be cured.
For more details and information, discuss with a sexologist about this.
Take care.
