Kissing Concern...
      #17470 - 04/19/01 12:10 PM

I recently read an article, quoting an HIV researcher (Luc Montaigner, the researcher that originally identified HIV as the cause of AIDS), that stated HIV can be transmitted through kissing. I was tested in February, a year after my last sexual relationship and everything was fine. But I've kissed two guys since (I'm female). It really has me concerned, I thought I was being safe. One of the guys recently had a root canal, but he said it wasn't bleeding, he actually let me look (I've never had a root canal, I was curious).

I'm going to get tested, but I've got a ways to go in the window period. Has anyone read anything in this forum to confirm or deny that people have gotten it through kissing? Check out the link below and any thoughts/responses will be appreciated.

I think you read way too much!!!
there are so many worries in life don't add to yours by doing this to yourself. you are not going to get infected through kissing even if these people you kissed were positive, sure theoretically if they were poz and you both had open wounds in your mouths and their blood had access to your wound and your saliva which acts as a buffer (the reason why saliva isn't a transmissable fluid)did not adhere to the virus and then the virus got in your bloodstream there may be a chance but......

No concern here.

Look through the body's posts on "Deep Kissing" and you will see what I mean.

Good Luck and God Bless
