Brief Answer:
We can't rule out the possibility of HIV transmission risk

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Thanks for posting your query.

If the sex partner is HIV Positive and has an uncontrolled viral load, and if you had some oral pathology, then there may be some risk of HIV transmission.

But the risk is low only.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
