Hi,

if my juice contains small amount of fresh blood can it cause infection? I had mouth ulcer.

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your query.

It sounds as though you would like some information on transmission.

HIV is a human-to-human virus and can only be passed from one person to another through the direct exchange of body fluids. Once HIV is exposed to the air, the virus becomes intransmissible, which we can reasonably say means that it can no longer cause infection.

For this reason, if you did find that your juice were contaminated with a small amount of blood, it would not pose a risk to you.

Please have a look at our [Risk Assessment Chart](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart) which will give you some idea of the types of common activities which do carry a risk for acquiring HIV.

I hope this helps.

Very best wishes

Wendy (Volunteer)
