Hiv transmission through kissing

Dear medhelp,

You do a great job here. About 50 hours ago, I engaged in deep kissing with a lady of unknown status. She last had a HIV test two years ago.

I am concerned because 7 days before our kissing, she had crowns placed on 8 of her upper teeth. This got me thinking about the possibility of her gums bleeding and that this could have happened during our make out session.

She says she would rather not know her hiv status than to know she is positive. This has really freaked me out given that CDC says open mouth kissing has been documented to have resulted in hiv transmission.  

What is the hiv risk associated to kissing with bleeding gums?
