breast milk and adult

Aug 28, 2013

If a girl should have an abortion,and it happened that her breast was sucked by a guy and a drop touches his tongue not knowing her status,what's the risk like.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Breast milk can transmit HIV but this occurs in children suckling large amounts repeatedly from their mother's breasts. That does not describe your situation and thus there is no risk with a lick.


kissing / bleeding / wisdom tooth
Dr. Wohl - Please..
