Can a man with a mouth disease such as gingivites,or absessed teeth pass on or cause a woman to get an infection through oral sex? If so , please explain and possibly give symptoms. Thanks

You have to know the cause of the abscess or gingivitis.If it was any of the STDs (sexually transmitted herpes for instance,then yes... you'll get infected. Check our website for the STDs part to learn more.
