Hi,

A week ago I was performing oral sex to my partner of unknown status and I knicked his penis unwantingly. He started to bleed a lot, I don't know where did I knick him but there was a lot of blood. When he went to clean himself, I went to wash my mouth and noticed that I did get blood on my mouth because my saliva was red.
I'm going to get tested but I wanted to know what kind of risk I was exposed to. Would it be able to get infected by HIV from blood in mouth?

Thank you for your answer,
Joshua

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you have a question about HIV transmission. We're happy to answer your question for you.

Giving oral sex is considered a low risk activity. This is the case even in the situation you describe, where you think you may have gotten some of your partner's blood in your moth. Low risk means that while transmissions are possible, they require specific circumstances to occur. An example of a circumstance might be you having had recent major dental work, for example.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has been answered fully.
