Cut by braces receiving blow job. What are my risks?

Question: 

Hi i received a blow job from a tranny with braces. I do not know if she had bleeding gums or open sores. It was dark so i did not notice any blood right after the blow job. But when I got home I noticed minor cuts on the glande and there was a bit of my blood. I am at risk? as far as a understand is her saliva -may be with an open cut in her mouth because of her braces- vs my penis getting cut.

Answer: 

Hello and thank you for your inquiry.

We understand that you are wondering about your risk of acquiring HIV when you received oral sex and then later noticed some minor cuts and a small amount of blood on your penis.

Firstly we would like to point out that the gender identity of the person who performed oral sex on you is irrelevant to your risk level for acquiring HIV. "Tranny" is considered to be a derogatory term, please consider using an alternative term such as trans-gendered, when it is necessary to point out a person's gender. (1)

Being on the receiving end of oral sex is usually considered to be a negligible risk for transmission of HIV, but we are upgrading your risk level to low risk because of the small cuts and blood you noticed on your penis, and the potential for cuts in the mouth of the person performing oral sex. There have been a few cases reported of HIV transmission when these circumstances exist. (2)

While it is still highly unlikely that you acquired HIV from this encounter, we would recommend seeing your doctor to be tested for HIV. In the future you might consider practising safer oral sex to further reduce your risk and your anxiety. Please refer to the second link below.
