SMALL BITE ON GUMS WHILE KISSING

Hi, 2 years back i kissed an escort girl,her status not known,it was a deep kiss ,during which there was saliva exchange,not sure if she had any sore in mouth.but when i was returning home i found that there was a small hairline cut in my gums, never have had any problems related to health after that .is there any chance that i can get the infection supposing she was positive.

NO

Despite the billions of kissing events in the AIDS era, not one case of HIV has been known to be transmitted that way, even though millions of those kisses undoubtedly were with cuts in the mouth or on the lips.  DR HANSFIELD

We get many questions about kissing and oral exposure and whether or not the presence of a cold sore, bites to the lip, gum disease or other wounds in or around the mouth changes the answer to the question.  The answer is no.  The data which define the absence of any risk of getting HIV through kissing, deep or otherwise has be generated through studies of thousand and thousands of persons, some of whom had cold cores, cuts, etc.  There is no risk.  DR.

Saliva technically speaking, a sterile fluid, i.e. completely free of all germs. YOu can never get any viruses from saliva. No way and No how. Plus our saliva has antibodies from the intruding viruses.

Note: If kissing transmit HIV, I guess 80 billion people are infected.

Dear Tom ,thanks a lot,that is a correct statement,if kissing would have been an effective route much more people would have been affected.Hence I am taking your answer .Only thing is this has increased my anxiety and i am starting to think whether she was bleeding,had sores our chapped lips all doubts i am having+the fear that will i be the first one to get this .if this could have happened this would have happened really in the last 30 years.Really scared thats what  i am now.Thanks for the comforting post.

If you say bleeding it must be BLEEDING that requires serious medical attention. Believe me, you will not kiss someone's mouth if you see it's really BLEEDING as is blood is actaully pouring out. Relax, don't drive yourself to anxieties. Your as fine and as clear as purified water.:)
