surprisingly high, actually. Anything you can get on your *hem hem* naughty bits you can also get in your mouth/throat. Genital warts on your vocal chords, herpes in your throat, and then that can be transmitted back to him. If you’re thinking that you might have one because of him I would go to a doctor. Diseases like chlamydia don’t show any symptoms but if left uncared for you can get scarring on your uterus and become infertile. They’re not legally allowed to tell your parents or anyone for that matter, so just go and be on the safe side.

The sexually transmitted infections that can be passed during oral sex are herpes, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, and syphilis. There is a very small risk for getting and giving HIV through oral sex, too. You can get more info about the relative risks of getting each of them here -

We hear this question a lot from people who call our support line. It’s a great and important question about a confusing and rarely discussed topic. Oral Sex. We know that unprotected vaginal and anal sex are definitely risky, but can you really get an STD from giving or receiving oral sex?

Flat out, yes. You can get an STD from giving or receiving oral sex. Going without a condom or a dental dam while performing or receiving oral sex is unsafe sex. Gonorrhea, Herpes, Syphilis, and even HIV can be spread this way. It would be wise to get tested for STDs to be aware of your current sexual health – and be sure to practice safe sex in the future. There is no way to know if you have an STD unless you are tested.

HIV can be transmitted through direct contact with the blood or body fluid of someone who is infected with the virus. That contact usually comes from sharing needles or by having unprotected sex with an infected person. An infant could get HIV from a mother who is infected.
Infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) weakens the body’s immune system and increases the body’s vulnerability to many different infections, as well as the development of certain cancers. HIV is a viral infection that is primarily transmitted by sexual contact or sharing needles, or from an infected pregnant woman to her newborn. Negative antibody tests do not rule out recent infection. By having sex with an infected partner. The virus can enter the body through the lining of the vagina, vulva, penis, rectum, or mouth during sex.

very very high. almost as likely as sex.
herpes one very good example.
HSV-1(oral) HSV-2(genital)
can be swapped and spread in both areas even if there is no outbreak. and could have it for years and never have an outbreak.
can only be tested in a blood test 6months after contracting…. due to having to wait for the antibodies to buildup in the system.
