Can I get HIV or an STI from oral sex?

People can get STIs by giving and receiving oral sex. Although there is a low rate of HIV transmission through oral sex, other STIs like gonorrhea and syphilis can be transmitted this way. If you perform a lot of oral sex (penis in your mouth), you may want to ask your doctor to do a throat swab for gonorrhea and chlamydia.
