Re: Dr Conway From India - Followup
Dec 1, 2007


I had my wisdom tooth removed by dental surgery. About a week and a half after surgery I engaged in kissing with my ex which included lip-to-lip kissing, lip sucking, and playing with the tongue, maybe twice! As far as I remember, there was no blood in her mouth, neither mine had any....No sex of any form happened! Does this warrant testing?

Response from Dr. Conway

I am not aware of any cases of HIV infection being transmitted by kissing, however long or intense the kissing might be.


What should i do now? forget about it and move on and/or test for HIV?

My mind says forget and move one...not sure what you think though!


Response from Dr. Conway

Yes, forget about it.
