hi
1.about 2 months ago I received unprotected blowjob from a women after we were done I didn't see any cuts or trace of blood on my penis.
2.about 2 days ago I french kissed a girl, (not that deep) and also Im sure I didn't have bleeding gums but we did it at morning I guess she had her mouth brushed about 30 before kissing. Should I be worried about getting infected?
Thanks

Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions! We're happy to help. It sounds like you're concerned about the risk of HIV transmission from receiving oral sex and open-mouthed kissing.

1) Receiving oral sex is considered to be a negligible risk activity, meaning that while it is theoretically possible to acquire HIV in this scenario, there has never been a confirmed report.

2) Kissing (with no blood present) is considered to be a no risk activity. Here is a copy of the AIDS Vancouver transmission equation, which outlines how HIV is transmitted:

HIV TRANSMISSION EQUATION


BODY FLUID
+
ACTIVITY
+
DIRECT ACCESS TO BLOODSTREAM
---------- -------- ----------------------------
• blood (including menstrual) • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • vagina
• semen • sharing needles • anus
• pre-cum • mother to child (in specific cases) • urethra in the penis
• rectal secretions • open cuts and sores (in theory)
• vaginal fluids • other mucosal membranes
• breast milk • points of needle injection
As you can see, all three factors (body fluid, activity, and direct access to the bloodstream) need to be present in order for there to be a risk of transmission. If you have any further questions about risk level, I encourage you to read through our [Risk Assessment Chart](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart).

I hope I have answered your question, and feel free to contact us with any further concerns.
