HIV from deep French kissing

Mar 15, 2014

I have a concern that has popped up on me like a thief in the night. About a year ago I strayed from my relationship with my wife. The other woman was an old friend and I let things get way out of hand. I had several meetings with the other woman. We had several deep make out sessions, with lots of tongue kissing. Well I broke it off and I am now worried she could have given me HIV. Her teeth were not in the best shape. I never did have intercourse with the other woman though. Well fast forward to wife is pregnant. I have never had sex with any woman but her and we both were of negative status prior to my straying.

1. is there a remote chance my makeout sessions could have transmitted HIV. 2. Do I need to be tested? 3. Will my wife and unborn child have a chance of contracting HIV from me. 4. Is it safe to continue sex with my wife....I should have never put myself at risk making out with another woman.

Response from Dr. Wohl

No, absolutely, no risk of HIV here. At all. Really.
