Hi there, I asked the below question and you answered. at below threat and first Q&A

I believe the great volunteer who answered thought i went to the dentist AFTER the encounter.  The fact is I went to the dentist BEFORE going to the strip joint.

Can you answer each question below in same format by listing 1-5 with detail?  

So again.  My questions are:

1. Because i went to dentist BEFORE I went to strip joint, and due to the picking and removing plaque, cleaning and flossing of my teeth, there was blood while I was at dentist when I rinsed my mouth after the cleaning so therefore small cuts.  I have read that cuts have to be big enough to require medical attention such as stitches in my mouth for their to be any risk?Is that true?    So, if blood entered my mouth at strip joint AFTER the dentist with these small cuts, can I get HIV?

2.. Nipple noshing as you called it below.  If my mouth was on a nipple without pulling my mouth off, literally sucking vs licking, and not removing my lips form her nipple for like a minute long, would that provide an airless environment like a needle syringe and create risk?

 
3. If my mouth had these small cuts, and if later that day the strippers nipple bled into my mouth, while my mouth was latched on to nipple,  is this still a no risk and why?  Is this then with all proper facts given, still a zero risk, or is it a low risk, or high risk?  Below you said no risk, is the answer still the same?

4. Has their ever been any reported transmission of HIV from noshing on a womens nipple in any shape, way or form with any circumstances, including bleeding from nipple etc?  (Excluding breast feeding obviously.)

5. Is their any combination at all from this encounter that it would be a risk?


Please be very detailed I am very nervous.


Hi there

I was at a strip joint last year, and got a private dance and sucked the nipple of a stripper.

I was very very drunk.  I did go to dentist that day (afternoon) for normal cleaning which causes bleeding when they pick at your teeth to remove plaque and floss etc

So my worries are:

1. If during the act of sucking her nipple, any blood came out of her nipple into my mouth, can I be at risk?  Especially since I went to the dentist?  I doubt I would taste anything because I was really drunk.

2. I understand that oxygen kills it, but if my mouth was on her nipple while sucking and not exposed to the air (mouth over her nipple), and blood came into my mouth, wouldn't that be airless?

3. Is this low risk, high risk, or zero risk?

Worried.........please answer soon in detail?
 
 
Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of HIV transmission after potentially being exposed to blood from nipple noshing (sucking).

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No Risk 
(transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

According to the HIV Transmission Equation (see image below), HIV transmission requires HIV particles in a bodily fluid (e.g. vaginal fluids, blood, semen, etc.) to have direct access to the bloodstream through a High, Low, or Negligible Risk activity.

In the scenario you mentioned, there is not an exchange of bodily fluids that would facilitate HIV transmission. In the extremely rare event that blood from the other individual did enter your mouth, it is worth noting that the saliva in your mouth can "inhibit HIV replication in infected cells and can rapidly kill HIV-infected leukocytes" (1).

You mentioned that you went to the dentist and you are worried about bleeding gums, etc. however, since this happened likely several hours following your encounter, any hypothetical HIV particles that would have been in your mouth would have been inactivated by this time, negating the risk of an entry point into your bloodstream.

Nipple noshing (sucking) only presents a serious risk for HIV transmission when a new mother living with HIV breastfeeds her infant.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a healthcare professional for other health-related questions.

Hi there,

Thank you for your response. 

We have considered the new information that you have provided. We maintain that this scenario is determined to be of No Risk (HIV transmission is not possible in the given scenario). 

This scenario is determined to be
No Risk for the following reasons:

In the scenario you mentioned, there is not an exchange of bodily fluids that would facilitate HIV transmission. In the extremely rare event that blood from the other individual did enter your mouth, it is worth noting that the saliva in your mouth can "inhibit HIV replication in infected cells and can rapidly kill HIV-infected leukocytes" (1).

Nipple noshing (sucking) only presents a serious risk for HIV transmission when a new mother living with HIV breastfeeds her infant.

Although you clarify that the vacuum seal created between your mouth and your partners nipple, and that you had visited the dentist before the event of nipple noshing had occurred,  the above circumstances still apply. 

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a healthcare professional for other health-related questions.
