Hello and thanks for using the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source for HIV related information. Swallowing blood of a person living with HIV could present a risk of transmission to you, although it is not clear that you actually swallowed blood in the situation you have described. You may wish to consider HIV testing in order to know your health status. Testing can be done from 4 weeks to 3 months following a possible exposure. You can get a conclusive result at 3 months after exposure. Without knowing your current sexual health status regarding HIV you may not wish to have sex with your girlfriend until you have more information.

I would like to add that it is not the person (in this case a commercial sex worker) but the activity that puts you at risk for HIV transmission. If you are sexually active you could consider a routine of regular testing for HIV and other STIs (sexually transmitted infections) as part of maintaining your sexual health and that of your partner(s).

If you have other HIV related questions in the future please contact the Helpline again.

Best wishes,

Marnelle
