Can you get HIV from making out?
I made out with my boyfriend last year, and I got the Flu a week later. I'm pretty sure we didn't have blood to blood contact. I didn't have any open bleeding wounds in my gums, cheeks, or lips. I'm also a hypochondriac, so things like these drive me crazy. Am I fine, or should I get tested?

you'll be ok..im a hypochondriac too. just stay positive and cast it out of your mind. i heard once that it would take a gallon of saliva to affect someone. and plus even if you did get something like hiv, which im sure you don't because it doesn't happen that easily, we already have the cure., they are just in the process of figuring out how to market it.
its ****** up. i know

Body fluids; that includes saliva.

any open wet hole !!!!

if you think it is a possibility,get teasted.it is as simple as swabbing your inside cheek with something that looks like a q-tip.then no more worries and there are clinics in your area where it is free.but sounds like you will be fine unless you know they were infected.go for it...good luck

You answered your own question.
You asked solely due to the fact that you are a worrier.
I suggest Paxil or Wellbutrin instead of an HIV test

Well it is said that it has to be blood to blood contact, but inthe beginning they said it could be passed through saliva-i dont even trust what they say really since they really didnt know anything about it when it started to be widespread-if you are going to worry about it-i would have the test otherwise you will have stress about worrying as i am sure it will always be in your subconscious thought,

get tested, hurry!

First thing, go to an authoritative source for your information, let's start with:


Now, let's analyze the facts. Your session was last year and you then contracted the flu a week later. Though you didn't say so, I'm presuming you recovered normally. If that accurately summarizes your situation, you've got nothing to worry about.

The CDC, or Center for Disease Control is the main body of the government which collects and oversees studies of HiV and many other STD's. They have, out of many hundreds of thousands of reports, only one case that allegedly may have been due to saliva exchange but did not feel prompted to consider saliva as one of the bodily fluids which carry the virus.

Rest easy, be careful, enjoy life.........

Unlikely, only through open cuts in the mouth you can

nothing wrong with being paranoid.... If you guys didn't exchange bodily fluids you are kool...I have a friend that has HIV since 2000; and has told me just about more than I ever knew about the virus, I was very paranoid like you, but until I actually read about it, I didn't really understand it myself and didn't want to be around her; I was ignorant to the fact... But now that i have learned more she's no different from anyone else. I love her like a sister...

no you cant.

The chances of you having HIV are pretty slim to none. I would say mononucleosis is more likely or a cold or the flu.
At this point I would not get tested.
