Am I Infected? / Re: Risk HIV from Kissing
« Last post by Wade on Today at 07:20:43 AM »
No, and this question has been asked and answered wording it differently will not give you a different answer. 

You have been asked not to post outside your thread and also warned. Your fear is irrational and there is nothing more we can help you with in this setting.

Many thanks, and one more question, a small paper cut on finger does not cause a risk for fingering a lady. And has anyone ever been effected with what I have suggested.
Hi, nothing you mentioned was risk for HIV.
Neither the oral and certainly not kissing, keep in mind other STIs are much easier to transmit. If these were your only concerns it is safe to move on.

Best, Wade

Happy Belated Birthday Leatherman
thanks so much. :) we're nearly through birthday month here. My middle brother had a bday a few weeks back, followed by my Mom's bday the next week, with mine last week, and my little brother's bday this week.

Plus a niece, a nephew, a great-uncle, and 10 other dear friends from the ages of 14 to 47. We are simply birthday-ed out by this point. ::) LOL

by the way, a while back my husband got us watching through the West Wing series. How did I miss this damn show?!? I'm so political and such a news junkie. I guess, because it was airing during the years when I had just not died to just before my 2nd partner died, I must have been getting over the AIDS and falling in love, so I was too busy to watch.  :D But back to the present, we're trying to watch 1-2 shows a night during dinner and we've got 3 episodes left in season 6. (Who is going to be the new (D) nominee?? no, don't tell me LOL I'll know by friday night ;) )
Please can you evaluate the following:

1. I have a lady oral and would like to know this risk from oral to mouth?
2. Kissing, If I had small cuts in my mouth what would be the risk from kissing/oral?
3. Has anyone every been infected from this?

Many thanks for your awesome work.

Happy Belated Birthday Leatherman,

Your post is really heartwarming. People like yourself and others here on the forum really were/are  an inspiration and huge help from the time of my diagnosis , to med change,  to appreciation  of life now ....Will never understand the hurt you and so many others felt when losing loved ones at the beginning. So many people have struggled and fought so hard to be where we are now with modern meds, pricing, funding, reaching those who have no means etc....Still alot of work to continue but man oh man I feel positive even with my positive status .Continued good success Leatherman, best wishes.

Let me guess, the alligator tasted like "chicken." ;D

Glad you had a bit of a respite, even though some was work, and are feeling better for it.

Safe travels home!

Termina con sus dudas.  Estas el VIH negativo y no tiene que probar otra vez.

Adelante con tu vida.
