Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

Chances of transmission of HIV by sucking the breasts are there if there was some skin disease causing cuts on the breasts or the nipples. Moreover your partner had cuts on his lips as well. In both these cases, HIV can get transmitted, otherwise not.

CDC (centre for disease control and prevention) has clearly stated that specific fluids (blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk) from an HIV-infected person can transmit HIV. These specific fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the blood-stream (from a needle or syringe) for transmission to possibly occur. In your case your partner had cuts on his lips and then you have noticed cuts on your nipples.

HIV testing is done with a blood test and is done in full confidentiality. The blood is first tested by ELISA test which is a screening test which looks for antibodies in the blood. Then if it is positive then Western blot test is done to look for specific proteins of HIV. You can get ELISA test for HIV done from your physician.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Hello,

Thanks for writing back to me.

If there is a blood to blood contact even if the cuts are microscopic then chance, of transmission of HIV are there although in case of such cuts, chances become less.

To be absolutely clear about the status of HIV, you can get investigated for it.

Hello,

Thanks for writing back.

You can get HIV tetsing done by ElISA method now. The window period for the antibody test to be positive is around 3 months.

If the HIV antibody test is negative at 3 months, then HIV is virtually ruled out as ELISA is a very sensitive test to pick up even very small amount of antibodies.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.
