Ask Dr. K
ANTI-VIRAL MOUTHWASH

QUESTION
Is there an anti-viral mouthwash or spray for use after oral sex?

ANSWER
Currently, the product that you describe does not exist as a preventative measure against exposure to HIV or other STDs. The future is anybody’s guess however.

If you have concerns about your risks of getting or receiving oral sex, check out our sexual activity risk chart. We recommend that people who are sexually active with more than one partner have a routine STD screening performed every 3 months and an HIV test done a least every 6 months.

To your health,
Dr. K
