Hello, I am very worried. I engaged in nipple licking a sucking about 4 months ago and i was unaware to check wether her nipples were bleeding or not. If I had a small cut in my mouth would that be a possible way of transaction? I am very very worried I was severely drunk so that's why I was so stupid

Hi there,

Nipple sucking/kissing is considered a no risk activity. For there to be any risk of infection, several conditions would need to be met. These conditions include the exchange of bodily fluids with potentially high viral load (blood, semen) + engaging in high risk activity (such as unprotected anal/vaginal sex, needle sharing) + direct access to the blood stream.

There is no risk of HIV transmission through blister wounds or small cuts. The only case of HIV transmission through cuts/wounds happened during a bloody knife fight. The type of wounds that would constitute any risk of transmission are fresh deep, and heavily bleeding one.

The situation as you described it thus puts you at no risk of HIV infection and you do not require testing. However, AIDS Vancouver recommends that all sexually active people be regularly tested for all STIs, including HIV, on a schedule that works for them.

I trust that I have answered your questions.

Best wishes,

Malath
