Q: 

This might sound paranoid and crazy, but I have heard of HIV risks coming from french kissing. Should I get tested since I don't know the status of the other person? Thanks!

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. AIDS/HIV is usually transmitted through these body fluids (blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk) from an HIV-infected person.  If you are still concerned, it might be good to get tested for HIV. 

Here is a link that might be helpful on HIV

Best of luck,

Daisy
