Not a chance.  HiV is not transmitted through saliva.  What makes you think a canker sore 5 days after has anything to do with anything?

HIV through this incidence is just not possible

Like sparkeler told you HIV can't be transmitted through saliva cuz saliva contains sugar proteins which eliminates the virus

secondly, I'm sure the other guy must have washed the brush with water after using and then you used it, please take some time and learn about HIV and it's transmission cuz it's essential to know

What???
You've read it....Stop it

You are not listening to us, HIV CAN'T BE TRANSMITTED THAT WAY.....what a pity you are not even aware of basic sex education

YOU DON'T REQUIRE ANY TESTING

If you wanna confirm the same shell out 15 bucks outta ya pocket and ask the Dr.here or else go consult with your GP but that would be waste of time and money since the end opinion won't change
