French kissing

If we french kiss someone who's HIV positive, do we need to get tested after the window period? What doctors tell to their HIV positive patients about french kissing HIV negative ones?

If you French kiss anyone who is HIV positive, you have no reason to test for HIV. Kissing is absolutely not a risk for HIV transmission in any way, shape, or form. Saliva is not infectious and cannot cause transmission of HIV.
