Drinking from glass with 'slightly' bloody gums

Hi guys,

Been trying to educate myself on hep c/hiv transmission etc. Is there an actual practical risk of contracting hep c from drinking from a cup with slightly bleeding gums if there is blood on the cup? - the gum in not oozing with lots of blood just a little when the gum is compressed?

Thank you

Highly unlikely.

Hep c infected blood must enter your blood stream through an open wound.

Forst the cup would have to contain hep c infected blood. Then this blood would have to be forced into your open bleeding gums against the pressure of your blood leaving your blood vessels.
