cut on lip
Oct 24, 2012

Sir i had a cut on my lip and its bleeding too. Last night i had sex with pros where i had condom and even done fingering but not have lip kiss but only suck the boobs i m afraid of exposure to hiv

Response from Dr. McGowan

HI, If your only oral contact was sucking a breast (dry?, no milk) then there would be no risk of acquirung HIv because you had a cut on the lip. Vaginal sex, deep kissing may raise some small risk.

If you have not had an HIV test, it is a good idea to get one and see what your status is, and practice safer sex.
