I had a low risk contact to a person I did not know of the status (deep mouth kissing). I know that she has a very wide connection with people all over the world. I did the HIV-1 test and it came back negative. I am just wandering if HIV 2 can transmit through kissing. Since I am not sure if she had a relationship with somebody from west africa, is it necessary for me to get a HIV2 test? Thanks.
Response from Mr. Kull
HIV is not known to be transmitted through kissing, so HIV testing for HIV-1 or HIV-2 is not necessary.
See Kissing for more information.
