Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive kissing

hiv

Avatar m tn i know you cant get hiv from french kissing but wondering if you can get a opportunistic infections from kissing her?
Avatar f tn I know from reading other forums that kissing poses virtually no possible transmission. If an HIV Positive person has a cut on his lip that may or not have been bleeding is it possible to transmit hiv this way to a person that may or may not have had an open or irritated area on their lips.
Avatar m tn can u get hiv from french kissing a hiv positive girl if she not on her meds and she have high viral loads
Avatar m tn i been french kissing a girl for awhile and the other day she told me she was hiv positive. she said that she hasnt been on her meds for about a year. can i get hiv from french kissing her? she does have bad teeth and dont know if she ever had blood in her mouth. if you viral loads was very high can i catch it easier?
Avatar m tn She have some bad teeth and a sore throat for about 3 weeks. She told me that she was HIV positive that is all we done was French kissing. I had a sore throat for a couple of weeks and feel like a swollen lymph node on one side of the neck. I had e rash on the front side of the neck just one spots. It went away after day. I did a 30 day antibody test and it came neg. Should I be worry and what is the accurate of the test? I heard it would be 90 percent on the doctor forum.
Avatar n tn 1) Nobody is known to have ever acquired HIV by kissing, even when cuts etc were present. It probably can occur, but is very rare. 2) I doubt you can draw any inferences from the time it takes for test results to return. It is dependent less on the result (positive or negative) than on simple operational aspects: when the specimen was drawn, when it arrives in the lab, when the lab does its next test run, and when the lab sends out the results.
Avatar m tn she just called me and told me she has hiv and had for awhile. can i get hiv from french kissing her with sores on my mouth?we was using tongues . she said that she been on meds but been off of them for about 3 months. does that make it easier for me to get? can you get any std from kissing her?

Avatar m tn i kissed an Hiv positive girl once on the mouth with saliva about 2 months ago and have no symtoms or anything, should i get tested. no i did not do anything sexual with her.. im worried should i go for a test or not worry?
Avatar n tn http://www.medhelp.org/posts/STDs/hiv-and-kissing/show/246621 Technically, HIV transmission by deep kissing might be possible, especially if the infected person has a particularly high viral load--and one such circumstance is primary HIV infection, during the window period. Even here, however, such transmission undoubtedly is extremely rare, and HIV transmission by kissing has never been documented.
Avatar m tn If we french kiss someone who's HIV positive, do we need to get tested after the window period? What doctors tell to their HIV positive patients about french kissing HIV negative ones?
Avatar m tn Kissing, even with small cuts or wounds, is NOT a risk for HIV.
Avatar n tn All HIV questions need to be posted in the HIV community. I will answer this here but if you have follow up questions which I don't think you should, please post in the HIV community. Kissing is not a risk no matter what. In 25+ years of HIV no one have ever gotten HIV from kissing and you will not be the first.
Avatar f tn If you were 2 deep kiss someone hiv positive, what would have 2 be the exact circumstances for them to transmit hiv 2 u? i kno u can get it thru cuts in the mouth but how big would the cut have 2 be? would both of the peoples mouths need 2 be cut? can u only get hiv if it goes into a cut? or do u get it if it just goes into your mouth? pleasee be detailed! thanks u!
Avatar m tn French kissing is not a risk for HIV. HIV is transmitted through unprotected vaginal and anal sex, among IV users and from mother to child.
Avatar n tn You symptoms came on too soon to be due to HIV, and they don't sound like HIV anyway. You did not need HIV testing and don't need any more testing. (They call HIV and other infections STDs because they are transmitted by sex; and kissing doesn't count as sex from a disease transmission standpoint.) On top of all that, the odds that a randomly selected woman on a dance floor has HIV are extremely low.
Avatar n tn I recently kissed an HIV positive girl and even though i couldnt determine if she had blood in her mouth or not and i certainly did not taste blood in my mouth either,but i was always producing phlegm in the mouth at that time, which i attributed to allergies or sinuses. I started developing a sore throat 36hours later and before the end of the day the sore throat went away and i started getting mild headaches.
Avatar m tn and have been told many times by more than one person that kissing is NOT a risk for HIV! No way possible. You did not get HIV from kissing this girl. You need to accept what you have been told and move on with your life knowing you were never at risk. For you to continue posting the same question and receiving the same answers is a waste of both your time and ours. Please relax and move on. You're FINE!
Avatar n tn IN TREATED COUPLES WE THINK THAT THE REASON FOR LOW TRANSMISSION FROM AN HIV POSITIVE TO AN HIV NEGATIVE WHERE UNPROTECTED SEX OCCURS IS BECAUSE OF 1) LOW VIRAL LOAD INDUCED BY THE MEDICATIONS AND 2) OTHER FACTORS SUCH AS THE LOW RATE OF OTHER STD'S OR STI'S WITHIN THESE GROUPS. FOR THE MAJORITY OF MY HIV POSITIVE PATIENTS IN SERODISCORDANT RELATIONSHIPS, CONDOMS PREVENT TRANSFER. So how can we take conclusions from studying those couples?
Avatar m tn , a couple of months ago I french kissed a guy (on two occasions, not for long) who is hiv positive. No other contact occurred and I did not assume that this posed a risk for hiv transmission but I've recently come across advice on internet sites where they see some potential for transmission, on one such site (thebody.com) one of the experts even advised testing adding that a negative test result would only be reliable in the case of French kissing after 6 months.
Avatar n tn You were never at risk from kissing open or closed mouth.
