Last night I called a CSW and engaged in french kissing a few times. I checked today for open sore on the lips and mouth and there were none. However I have bad gums and sometimes they bleed when brushing my teeth. Today in the morning the gums did not bleed but this afternoon they bled a bit after brushing. I have read that although very rare there have been a few reported cases of transmission through kissing. I am in a relationship and I am concerned that I could have been infected. I would appreciate your advice as to the risk involved and whether I should get tested for HIV considering that I am in a relationship and I have unprotected sex with my girlfriend.
