French kissing with gums that were bleeding may cause HIV?

May 28, 2012

I had a girlfriend who is sexually active but I wasnt aware until we broke up. She would always French kiss me. I had chapped lips all the time due to winter season. I didn't know if her mouth was bleeding or not. I would never taste blood. She would French kiss me in the morning about 15 minutes after I brushed my teeth. My gums would stop bleeding before she kissed me. I don't know if her gums were bleeding. Please respond! I haven't been able to think straight! I'm falling behind in school! She claims to use condoms. I never had sex with her or any type of sexual activity. I've been praying to the good lord for good health. Please answer!!!!! I'm only 14!

Hi You cannot get HIV from kissing. Rest assured that you are fine!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
