A member asked:

If a woman has her vaginal fluids in her mouth can she possibly transmit hiv to another man after deep kissing? or does the virus die in the mouth ?

rare: Oral transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) by hiv-infected individuals is a rare event. Don't know how long it would take for saliva to kill off the virus particles. Although rare its still possible. Best to get checked. Talk with your doctor.
