HIV from sharing a drink

Jun 26, 2012

i have an ulcer in my mouth and i share drink from water bottle and cigg with my friend. he got hiv. will i get it too? thanks alot for the ans!!!

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

There is no way to get HIV from the situation you describe. You can't get HIV from saliva. If there were a HIV+ body fluid it would need to be there in significant quantities. None of this happened in the situation you described.

Hope this helps!
