No it is not possible.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Nbhagora,

Welcome to HCM.

HIV virus can be transmitted through infected blood when it comes in direct contact with cuts or abrations of skin or blood transfusion but not through food or water and I have never seen any such case so be relaxed, don't get worried and live your life normally. For any further query feel free to ask me again and I am here to help you always.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
Then it would be possible.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Nbhagora,

Welcome back and thanks for follow-up.

If bleeding gums or small cuts in mouth are there and the blood is infected with HIV then there would be the possibility of HIV but the chances are less because human saliva contains an enzyme which inhibits the growth of HIV virus so be relaxed and move on in life happily.

Dear Nbhagora,

Welcome to HCM once again.

I have never seen any such case as like your exposure so I don't think there would be any risk but still to be 100% sure you can go for 4th generation HIV Duos test at 12 weeks. The result will definitely come in your favour so don't get anxious and live your life normally.
