Welcome to the forum. But the answer is simple and obvious, so my reply will be brief.
Sometimes all the information necessary to accurately reply is contained in the title chosen for the question. That is the case here. Kissing, french or otherwise, has never been known to transmit HIV. That's not to say it can't happen, but since it has never been known, the risk can be considered zero for all practial purposes. Cuts or sores in the mouth probably make no signnificant difference.
However, this does not mean that I would recommend repeated kissing of a known infected person, perhaps especially someone with overt AIDS. Beyond the diagnosis of overt AIDS, the important information is whether she is on anti-HIV drugs; and how much HIV is in her blood, i.e. the result of a viral load test. If she is being treated and has an undetectable or very low viral load, there would be little or no risk even with unprotected intercourse. If you do it, you probably would not be infected. But common sense says there is no point in taking the chance.
My advice, especially if your relationship with this woman is likely to continue, and if you expect to someday go beyond kissing to vaginal or anal sex, is that you accompany her to her next clinic or doctor appointment for her HIV/AIDS care. Together the two of you can discuss what precautions are necessary to protect you.
I hope this helps. Best wishes-- HHH, MD
It will never go any further than kissing. I know she is on Meds but not sure about her viral load.if she does have aids would I still be safe from where I kissed her last nite? Would it be safe again to kiss her?if the only thing I do is French kiss her can I catch it sinse you said it is never transmitted from kissing
As I said, whether or not she meets the definition of AIDS makes no difference. Her being on anti-HIV meds greatly lowers your risk. Kissing her is safe.
If she is not on Meds will I still be safe. I'm just kissing nothing else.I got a little confused in the second of what you wrote. I thought you said someone aids wouldn't be safe to kiss and you wouldnt recommend to kiss you again. Can I do repeat kissing with and be safe? I can of like her but I want to be safe just from kissing her
There are few absolutes in HIV prevention. Nobody can say kissing carries no risk for transmission, only that the risk is so low that it has never been known to happen. That's best I can do. You're going to have to make your own decision based on the available information I have given.
Seems like you saying kissing is safe that what you said In one of the answer you gave me. Could I ask you something would you french kiss a HIV positive person and don't worry about? The place I live at don't know to much about HIV that I am asking you and thank you for helping me. I think you are telling me safe to kiss her
I'm I meant to ask you to .should I get tested from this exposure?
You may not keep returning with every additional anxiety-provoked thought that comes to mind. That will be all for this thread.
