Is it okay to have unprotected oral sex after engaging in protected anal sex? Or is there an increased risk of infection from feces, etc?

Hello there and thank you for using the AIDS Vancouver Helpline forum,

It sounds like you are looking for some clarity on transmission of HIV during unprotected oral sex.

Giving unprotected oral sex is a Low Risk activity which means that there have been s a few reported cases of HIV in specific conditions

Receiving oral sex is a Negligible Risk, which means that "in theory" we can make case however, there has been no confirmed reports of HIV.
In this situation of engaging in unprotected oral sex *after* protected anal sex, risk does not increase because of prior activity. Each activity is taken separately for risk. in risk

But there could be an increased risk for Hepatitis A and B (less of HIV)because of contact with body fluids (like anal fluids) resulting from anal intercourse.
