Hi Mr. Kull,
I recently met a girl whom I don't know her sexual history very well. On one occasion, I sucked her nipple very hard for couple minutes. I know breast milk contains HIV virus. Can small amount of breast milk post a concern? Do I need to get tested?
Thanks a lot!

It is possible, but unlikely, that a small amount of breast milk will infect you with HIV during the activity that you describe. The only documented cases of HIV transmission that have occurred through breast milk-ingestion has been from mother to infant during breast feeding.
