HIV and smoking? Risk?

Mar 7, 2013

I posted an earlier question but if I had a sore in my mouth. After smoking the blunt I licked my lips several times and a put my tongue on the mouth sore. Did I make the risk go higher by doing that? I really need to go get tested. What's the shortest amount of time I can wait? To get accurate test scores?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

HIV is not transmitted via inanimate objects like this. You were not at risk.

In health,


Is 12 week HIV Negative test conclusive
