Hi Josh!

Chances are very slim, since HIV occurs in saliva in really tiny quantities. The only risk of HIV transmission would be if she had bleeding sores in her mouth and you had sores on your penis that could act as entry points for the virus into your bloodstream. Chances of that are remote and the probability extremely low. Nevertheless, peace of mind is important and you might like to consider a test.

Regardless of the probability, you either got it or you didn't. Find out!

Stay well!

Practically nil - saliva is not considered infectious.
