Answer: 

Hello and thank you for your inquiry

We gather that you would like to know if you are at risk of acquiring HIV from kissing, and sucking on the breast of a woman whose HIV status is unknown.

This situation does not carry a risk of HIV transmission (No Risk), meaning that the activities you describe have never been demonstrated to lead to an HIV infection.

In order for an HIV transmission to occur, all three of the following conditions must be met:

  1. There must be HIV present in a bodily fluid. The five bodily fluids that carry the HIV virus include: blood, semen (including pre-ejaculate), vaginal fluids, breast milk, and rectal secretions. (1) Saliva does not carry HIV, which is why kissing does not carry a risk of HIV transmission. While breast milk can carry HIV, there has not been a confirmed report of an adult acquiring HIV by taking breast milk into the mouth, and according to the details you provided, there was no breast milk present in your case.

  2. The bodily fluid containing HIV must have direct access to the bloodstream. (1) You did not have any cuts or sores in your mouth, therefore there was no direct access to your bloodstream.

  3. Transmission occurs through a risky activity in which the first two conditions are met. (1) Having unprotected sex and sharing needles for intravenous drug use are examples of high risk activities.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions
