Hello and welcome to e health forum.

It is natural to be anxious when posed with the question, of possible infection with a incurable disease ‎like HIV. ‎

But, you need to understand, that a person gets infected only when the partner in question, infact is ‎infected with HIV, and has very high titres. ‎

Chances of HIV transmission via saliva (during kissing) is theoretically possible, but the actual chances are very negligible. But presence of bleeding ulcers and cuts in the oral cavity do increase the risk of such infections.

In case of severe doubt, you might benefit by testing yourself with HIV ELISA Tests, after 4-6 weeks of exposure which might clear all your doubts and help you to get on with your life.

I hope this helps.
