The doctor is correct. Most experts agree there is no need for PEP in this situation. For penile oral contact, CDC estimates the HIV risk for the oral partner at one chance in 10,000. That's equivalent to giving BJs to infected males (anatomic males) once daily for 27 years before infection might be likely. Don't worry about it.

Bleeding gums are not acceptable under any circumstances. Bleeding can indicate bacterial infection (gum disease), invasive viral pathogens as in HIV, systemic disease such as diabetes/leukemia/etc. Important that you see a Dentist, or preferably a Periodontist, and full disclosure is required for appropriate treatment.
