Worried and scared
Ok here's my story.  I have tried to study up on HIV the best I can.  The internet is so full of confusing data and I'm at the end of my rope here.  My friends tell me that I'm crazy and my question is regarding a non risk situation.  I'll get to the point.  I am a married man.  I have never had sex with anyone but my wife.  My wife is 100% negative (she had a test recently for insurance purposes).  My story is like so many.  I strayed from my marriage.... I met a lady that I had a lot in common with and we started talking.  My risky activity is only long make out sessions...no intercourse.. French kissing, deep open mouth kisses.  Well I came to my senses before I took things any further.  Well I have found out stuff about the other lady that has concerned me.  Is the deep kissing a HIV risk that warrants testing?  I only have so so oral health...and the other lady had some problems with her teeth.  I have really become concerned over this.  I am about to go buy an oraquick test... This happened months ago.  Could I test positive from this? My wife wants to have children and I'm scared I could infect her from this.  Basically should I buy the test over my exposure?  Should I be concerned for my wife ( can I safely have sex again).  What are the chances I'll test positive...does this ever happen..

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child

Thank you for your professional information.

So in other words, no one gets infected through French kissing / no risk and I don't need to test?
