Done the test

Oct 15, 2002

Today i went to the doctor and hospital to do a hiv-test at 3 months after exposure. I am quite scared to have hiv from a woman performing oral sex on me... symptoms are there, joint and muscle pain, dry mouth, reduced saliva, starting gum disease.

Now i have to wait 2 weeks for the results. I will let you know the result of the test.

Response from Mr. Kull

HIV is not known to be transmitted through receiving oral sex. Saliva contains little to no infectious HIV. Your results are highly likely to be negative.

See Saliva as a barrier.
