The percentage transmission of HIV via oral route is negligible. So, it is unlikely that you would get HIV by licking a vagina with your mouth.

The concern arises if you have open cuts or sores in your oral cavity or if there is an active vaginal infection that already exists.

I hope this is clear.

Let me know if you have more concerns.
