Deep kissing can cause HIV?

Mar 31, 2013

I was 9 years old. I had a deep kissing with my cousins everyday. I forgot, at that time we had a bleeding gums or not. But, since that day, I had a joint pain and muscle aches, and i got severe cough. Im very afraid of this. Please help me :"(

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Kissing is NOT a risk for HIV transmission. HIV is not transmitted through saliva. The muscle aches and symptoms are due to other reasons and if they continue I would recommend that you follow up with your healthcare provider for evaluation. But it is not HIV.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Can't sleep, and extremely nervous and anxious, PLEASE HELP!
Dr. Shannon. Final question!
