Anyhow, kissing isn't an HIV risk. Move on with your life.

There is risks in deep kissing if blood was involved

No, see saliva is hostile towards HIV and breaks down the receptors needed, same can be said for air and a bit of blood happens during this like kissing etc, it's not an HIV concern besides the mouth generally lacks a route for HIV to infect.

Now if you had both been beaten to a pulp before engaging in this kiss with blood pissing out everywhere I would say a theoretical risk at best, and no need to stress or test. However, this did not even happen because if it had you would have mentioned being covered in blood in the first post.

i have a girlfriend

I'll mention the same thing I do whenever anyone mentions being in a relationship. If you engage in condomless sex with your partner, you are obviously at risk of acquiring HIV. Often within relationships, condomless sex is based on trust or past test results; however, this does not prevent HIV. Any condomless sex simply means accepting the greater risk of acquiring HIV.

Test more frequently for HIV & STIs if you do engage in any condomless sex, otherwise test at least yearly out of standard routine.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms, and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

You're welcome.

You had no HIV risk from kissing, kissing is a risk for other infections such as CMV, herpes, and syphilis to name a few, although, there is need to panic every time you kiss someone.

I can continue safe

I presume you did not have her tested outside the window period for all STIs & then afterwards kept her locked up 24/7.

There is no such thing as safe sex, just safer sex.
