Hi,

Can sucking a woman's nipples (unknown health), result in disease transmission?

Thanks. a response will be really appreciated.

If there is viral activity on the surface of the skin and lots of sucking and friction going on and an opening .. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible, do you?

can HIV transmit this way, assuming there are no openings into the blood stream?

Have you thought about doing a google search on HIV transmission?

I did, and breasts are a mode of transmission when breast feeding an infant. That answers my question. But is this reality?

Thanks

Yes, this is reality.

Have you been tested yet?

I spoke to ASHA, they didn''t recommend testing and said the risk is non-existent.

But what you said seems to be possible:

"If there is viral activity on the surface of the skin and lots of sucking and friction going on and an opening .. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible, do you? "

So I thought about my incident a little:

1) There was no visible viral activity.
2) There was gentle oral contact with the nipples for 5 or so seconds.
3) There was no visible opening/bleeding

But again viruses are beyond human perception. I have to either convince somebody to test me or somebody has to convince me that there is absolutely no chance.

Since you seem to be unsure of your STD status all together then I do recommend that you be tested for any and all STDs. It's what I would do if I were in your shoes.

The only way to know your status is to get tested. Make sure they are testing you for everything that you are trying to figure out because not all STDs are included in the routine STD testing process.

There is a list of what your doc should be testing you for that isn't always included over on my :arrow: Herpes Help pages...

Good luck!!

Angela :wink:

HIV is transmitted through breastfeeding because the virus is sometimes present in the mother's milk, not on the skin of the breast. Additionally, babies can get very vigorous on the nipple, causing the nipple itself to dry and crack, leading the openings, which would then be open in the baby's mouth.

HIV is transmitted through fluids (blood, breastmilk, vaginal secretions, and semen), but not through gentle skin-to-skin contact when there are no openings on the skin. While it is possible to receive HIV orally if there are sores in the mouth (cold sores, open spots from brushing and flossing, etc.), it would comes from another open sore or one of the above body fluids.

no, sucking a nipple will not get you any disease what so ever.
