oral sex without protection and my partner is an hiv positive

Question: 

my question is just simple how many percentage can i get postive with unprotected oral sex bcs my part gave me an oral sex without protection and while doing that we saw that hes gums was bleeding.

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question you were asking about whether it is possible you are at risk for aquiring HIV through the act of oral sex, while your partner was bleeding.

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be of negligible risk (There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission). The practice you are asking about presents a potential for HIV transmission because it does involve the exchange of bodily fluids, however there has never been a confirmed report of HIV acquisition from the act of receiving oral sex.

Recommendation: There is no evidence or no documented cases of transmission. For this particular activity there is no need for an HIV test.

The following are some resources: Baggaley, Rebecca F., Richard G. White, and Marie-Claude Boily. "Systematic review of orogenital HIV-1 transmission probabilities."
