Hiv transmission

Hi,
I know this may be an atypical question, but can you get HIV from a man sucking/kissing on your breasts through the openings in your nipples? He may or may not have had bleeding gums although I did not see any obvious signs. Also, I am not breastfeeding or lactating.

Hello stephanie

No - there is no risk at all to you of HIV through anyone sucking your nipples.

People acquire HIV through one of:-

1) having been born to an HIV positive mother

2) having unprotected penetrative vaginal or anal sex

3) receiving contaminated blood products or transplant organs.

Social contact such as kissing, touching hands, sucking nipples, mutual masturbation will not result in HIV infection.

kind regards, Sean
