Kissing posses absolutely no risk for HIV transmission, your mouth contains
dozens of proteins and enzymes that actually damage the virus and render it unable to infect. There is a lot of useful and educational information on this website, you might want to look around and before you leave.
If this was your only worry it is safe to move on
To avoid infection,
You need to be using condoms for all anal and vaginal intercourse until you are in a trusting monogamous relationship and both have been tested for all STIs and HIV.
Everyone who is sexually active should have an annual exam and test for all STIs and HIV ,and always after unprotected intercourse. Always using condoms will give you peace of mind your tests will return with a negative result.

Hello Everyone, Please someone answer to me even if you think this is a dumb question. I'll appreciate it.
This is my story, Back in November 2015, I kissed a girl on business trip, I have a little scratch on my mouth, i don't know if she have any bleeding gum, but I DID NOT taste any blood, Now Im really worry because I didn't know her status, the anxiety is killing me, I can even look get concentrated on my Work, I know you guys don't discuss symptoms, but any way i haven't felt any, no fever, no nothing. Im really alert of them. Should I be worry about the outcome of the test.?

Yeah, but we are used to that. I always make a dash holding a big cup of STARBUCKS coffee when the green light is blinking. Just army of people all day long.

Thank you very much for your PM .
I will get in touch with you that way.
Now we are back to normal but another typhoon is approaching.
Did anyone see the special attraction that connected Tokyo to Rio at the closing ceremony of the Olympics ? Mario started from the famous district called Shibuya and got to the other side of the earth. Those who have been to Tokyo must have been to Shibuya.
Likewise,love your attitude.Will follow you now skifanatic.Will be thinking about you.

You have tested HIV-negative 12 weeks past exposure. You are HIV negative. Move on with your life.

I request mods to move this thread to the appropriate section
I am unable to sign up for paid subscription at this point because of sign in issues with my Paypal account so please forgive me for posting here.
My western blot report just came in and its negative
The 4th gen combo was negative too
I was advised to go for these tests after a weak positive result on the Quantitative PCR RNA by Cobas
i.e. < 20 copies
All tests were done 3 months post exposure and 2 months after PEP
I simply don't have the courage to go for another PCR RNA at this point
