Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

But how come that for example a needle is the most infected way to get infected,even with a tiny amount of blood yet tonguetwisting with a tiny wound not.
Yes I do understand that saliva is not contagious but if I have a small wound and have several minutes of frenchkisssing with somebody who is hiv positive is not considered dangerous at all.Im sure we all have some tiny,invisible particles of blood in our mouth without being consious of of it.The inside being susch a fragile enviroment.The same with a bite,im not afraid of the bite itself but if even if he had the smallest amoint of blood that would be immediately insert  my body.
All over the internet its stated that blood in conctact with blood is highly contagious.

That's right, there is nothing for you to be worried about.

You have already had 2 Time Outs. If you come back again with more non-risk worries you are going to find yourself getting banned from the site. There is no 3rd Time Out. Sexual risk for HIV is very simple. It's about unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

Stop making it more complicated than it really is.

We are not going to indulge you or participate in your obsessive and ill-founded concerns about HIV. So I am not going to dignify your latest comments with an answer.

You need to understand that you're just at the edge of being permanently banned from this site.

Get some professional help about your HIV fears as we cannot address that properly in this setting.

Stop the drama and get on with your life. If you come back again arguing and insisting about non-risks as being risks you will get banned.  This is your last warning.

So having a wound inside the mouth,on your gum, doesnt pose a risk if it comes in contact with saliva or even small blood particles of an hiv infected person.

I know transition has to take place inside the body but having such contact is inside the body so why,certainly tiny blood particles,doesnt pose a risk.

I did feel the wound when brushing my teeth on my gum

Havent there been cases of blood to blood contact inside the mouth which resulted in infection

Thank u

This REALLY is your last warning. Cut out the manufactured drama and just get on with your life. Or you can waste money and get tested and just collect another negative test result.

If you come back again you are going to get banned from the site. Period.
