HIV Transmission and Testing > Am I Infected?

My Situation - Nervous Wreck

<< < (2/3) > >>

Morgan:
Thanks Broken.   ;)

STB:
Thanks guys.  Morgan, can you comment on the possibility of HIV getting into my body via the tongue or inside of the mouth?  Can it just be absorbed into the tissue?  Or does it have to get in through an actual open blood vessel?

Morgan:
STB,

The mouth is a very inhospitable place for hiv.  Saliva acts to inhibit hiv making infection via the mouth a rare occurrence.  The absence of trauma in the mouth makes infection a formidable feat to accomplish.

STB:
Thanks again.  My results are sitting in the clinic, and I'm going tomorrow morning for them.  I'm about sick to my stomach right now.  Like so many people in my situation, I've read a lot on line looking for assurances that I didn't get HIV from precum in my mouth.  If it happened, it seems like I'll be in the vast minority.  One way or another I'll know tomorrow and be able to get on with things regardless. 

Morgan:
STB,

You have every reason to be optimistic.  Hang in there and come post those neg results tomorrow.

Morgan  ;)
