Is it possible to get infected by doing oral thing if one person has bleeding gums but both are negative. is it possible if any non-infected person comes in contact with the blood of a non infected person?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The only way for someone to become infected is to have unprotected sex with someone who is positive or share a needle. Two HIV negative people cannot create the virus. HIV transmission occurs when there is a direct exchange of body fluid that contains HIV this through blood, semen, vaginal fluid or mothers breast milk.

You are HIV free from this experience.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Accidently sharing a razor & hiv transmission.
