Hi there, and thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information.

It seems you're concerned about the possibility of HIV transmission.

Deep Kissing is a No Risk activity. This means that to our knowledge, none of the practices in this category have ever been demonstrated to lead to HIV infection.

Why?

* Saliva has an enzyme that inhibits the transmission of HIV.

* There was no direct access to your bloodstream. The sore on your tongue does not provide direct access to your bloodstream.

* The amount of blood from her gums would have to be significant to potentially provide a risk. The blood would have to be flowing very heavily out of her mouth and directly into your mouth. From my understanding of the situation, this is not the case in your situation.

I would also encourage you to check out the following resources for more information about HIV:

  • Risk Assessment Chart


  • HIV Basics


  • Thank you again for contacting AIDS Vancouver Helpline Online

    Cheers,

    Hilary
