I seem to recall reading somewhere that a person's saliva kills hiv. So assuming there is no bleeding or other window of opportunity in the mouth would swallowing semen pose a risk for someone who has a bleeding ulcer in the duodenum? Thank you.

I am not aware of any information that identifies people with bleeding ulcers to be at greater risk for HIV infection when swallowing semen. There have been test tube studies that demonstrate saliva has an inhibiting effect on HIV.
