Gums bleed and I performed anilingus on someone that is HIV+
Apr 18, 2010

Hi,

I believe I asked a question close to this before, but I didn't make clear that my gums bleed often and are very sensitive. i performed aniligus on a partner that we found out later has HIV.. I only used my tongue and we we didn't do anything else. I know that there is no documented cases of persons contracting it from oral sex...But seeing as my gums do be bleed, I am worried. Should I be? Thank u for your time,

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

Whether you should be or should not be worried may not be the relevant point here. You clearly already are worried. The bottom line is always: if you feel you've placed yourself at risk for HIV, get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. Your HIV-acquisition risk remains very low.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
