The answer is no, because the concentration of HIV in saliva is far too low to pose a risk of infection. Here are ways you can get HIV:
- Contact with infected blood, semen, or vaginal and cervical secretions with mucous membranes or an open wound;
- Injection of infected blood or blood products (i.e. with shared needle;)
- Transmission from infected mother to fetus and during breastfeeding
If you’re sexually active, make sure you’re practicing safer sex by using a latex barrier.

I’ve been with my partner for 6 months and for the past three months I’ve been feeling bad. I decided to go get myself checked. I got blood work done two weeks ago and my result came back that I tested positive for herpes 1&2. Is it possible that I got it from him? We have never used protection at all. Also if he gets tested, will he test positive or negative?

I am a 17 year old male. I have protected and unprotected sex with my partner, who i’ve been with for two years now. We had unprotected sex Sunday and Tuesday. When I got in the shower I looked down and saw these red dots on my penis. They don’t itch or anything like that. Idk what they are. Just scared and want someone’s help. Can you help me?

I just started using the ring as my primary form of contraception. I took my old ring out in preparation for the new one in a week, and my period started 3 days later. It was almost over by the time I put the new one in. How does the ring completely prevent ovulation if you don’t put it in on your period and the ring-free week has no hormones?

I tested negative for the 3 BIG std’s in September. My symptoms include sores in mouth and on tongue (coming and going) for about 6 months, sore throat for about 4 months, one genital wart, low grade fever, sometimes can’t get a deep breath, small cough, feeling of lump in throat. Please help. Does HPV result in fever?

I think I have gonorrhea and I’m already having symptoms of my joints aching. It’s been hurting the past couple days, I have frequent urination , abdominal pain, odor, and back pain but no discharge. How long will it take for the infection to go into my blood? Cause I know once it reaches my blood there’s not stopping it. I’m trying to get testing tomorrow but I have bad anxiety. I’ve been infected for about 3 1/2 weeks. I haven’t been able to go to the doctor till now I had to visit my mom and then we lost health insurance. I’m a 16 year old female. I only had sex once, with my ex boyfriend.
