Thanks for that, if my gums bleed sometimes during brushing my teeth. Would that put me to any further risk? I hadn’t brushed my teeth for at 10hrs prior to the possible exposure.

I am sorry for my late response.

You shouldn't worry because even in this situation , brushing your teeth 10 hours before these exposure , doesn't exist the risk to get HIV.
It needs a direct contact of vaginal secretions with an open bleeding wound to exist the risk of infection.

Hope I have answered your query.
