kissing & oral risk!!
      #9575 - 09/13/00 06:31 PM

i know the risk is low from receiving oral sex and kissing...(exposure to saliva only)...but im freaked out over this.. it happened 3 months ago, and i can't live like this, wondering about theoretical risks...and all of that!! i've read through "the body: website and hopkins... I KNOW the risk is negligible but im going to take a test tomorrow!! results in 24 hours! It sure beats saying "what if" forever!!

Good for you bro! I've been living like this for 6 long months.....what wasted time! Now I get my result on Friday. Let us know how you do....I'm sure you'll be fine!

Good luck my friend!

So, you are assuming a 3 month negative test is conclusive? Good luck in your test, Im sure it will be fine. :)

I've spoken to a few councellors here and all have said that 3 months is enough time...not one said to wait 6 months. I live in Canada, and these are the guidelines they are using...
