My new partner tested posative

Apr 8, 2006

Dear Dr:

First thank you fro being here to help people like myself. My partner is now posative and I thought first to leave him out of my ignorance and fear but I love him and see him for him more then the problem he faces. With that said I have a concern. I often will bite my lip or inside my mouth and bleed. He loves to open mouth kiss. He does not seem to have any bleeding in his mouth. Can I contact hiv from this kissing with blood or open sores in my mouth/ The other question is how long after brushing should we wait to kiss incase are gums have bled from tooth brush activity. Thank you so much for your help and answeres to my questions.

Response from Dr. Horwath

Kissing is an extremely low risk activity.
