I gave a gay person oral sex for me.
When I came back, I saw a scratch on my penis. If my partner has oral bleeding, I have hiv infection

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about acquiring HIV from receiving oral sex. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Negligible Risk. All of the practices assigned to this risk level present a potential for HIV transmission because they do involve the exchange of body fluids. However, there has never been a confirmed report.

Only certain body fluids—blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and breast milk—from a person who has HIV can transmit HIV (1). These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the bloodstream (from a needle or syringe) for transmission to occur (1). Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, vagina, penis, and mouth (1).

If the scratch was actively bleeding and it came in contact with the mucous membranes of your partner then it would serve as a possible route for HIV transmission.

Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission refer to physician for more personalized answers.

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Danielle
