“Is it possible to get HIV from kissing?”
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 are sexually active, make sure you’re practicing safer sex by using a latex barrier.
