What is the risk with bleeding gums and irritated gums?

Hi, i am very anxious with questions in my head, last week me and my girlfriend kissed deeply , 10 minutes after i brushed my teeth and i had observed blood on my gum after brushing. I don't know if she has scars or bleeding gums but i don't think so, because she didn't brush her teeth just put some toothpaste to her finger and cleaned her teeth with finger. because we were in my house and she didn't have toothbrush and I don't know if she has hiv or not but she told me that she was very active before dating with me.

So questions are;

1.How highly risk under i am?

2.Is it possible to transform hiv from her saliva to my blood?

By the way we didn't have any sexual intercourse,anal sex or anything else, just kissed deeply 10 minutes after i brushed my teeth.

"Kissing is no risk, even deep ("French") kissing and even with a person who sores on their mouth or has gum or dental disease."   DR HOOK

"Of course no risk. HIV is not transmitted by kissing, even with sores in the mouth.

Despite the billions of kissing events in the AIDS era, not one case of HIV has been known to be transmitted that way, even though millions of those kisses undoubtedly were with cuts in the mouth or on the lips."

You can hear a lot of things but that doesn't make them correct. You never had an exposure.

When i think about random kissing in clubs or somewhere else it is true but kissing right after brushing teeths is make bleeding fresh and there is the point which makes me anxious. But i want to believe You wise people, i wish you are true.

Did you happen to look at the date? Move along.

Yes, what changed since then? Do you mean it was a false diagnosis?

Scientific studies and at no time did you read it where it said verified. Peer reviews are not reliable resources.
