Dear doc, my wife is hiv+, just tested and found very recently. Before that, I used to have the wet kiss (ie tongue to tongue) with her. I went to get the hiv tested and found negative. Is wet kiss(saliva) transmitting hiv? Please advise me urgently.
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
With very rare exceptions, HIV is not transmitted by kissing. If your test is negative, you have little to worry about.
So, here's to your health and the long-term health of your wife.
