Elisa Test After 5 Weeks From French Kissing
Elisa test after 3 weeks&5 weeks negative. Only deep French kissing no penteration at all. Is it OK or not enough. I'm really worry?
No risk at all: Presumably you're speaking of HIV risk and testing. You were not at risk and did not need testing; HIV is not transmitted by kissing, deep or otherwise. (HIV is not transmitted by saliva.) And if your ELISA was for the antigen-antibody (4th generation) test, the 5 week result is conclusive. If a stand-alone antibody test, the results are over 95% conclusive, maybe have a final test at 6 wk. ...Read more

Worried about having caught something by french kissing random dude. How soon can I have blood tests done to find out if I'm ok? 2 weeks?
What disease?: Infectious diseases all have different incubation periods: gonorrhea, syphilis, hpv, chylamydia, candida, and HIV are all quite different, since they are bacteria, fungal organisms and viruses.

Lucky you!: You're not going to catch HIV that way. You can get gonorrhea, syphilis, CMV, infectious mono, herpes simplex and a few others. I trust this did not happen. You're a grown man now, big fellow, and it's time for you to become familiar with what can and cannot transmit HIV -- especially if (like most men) you're going to get close with folks you don't know that well. ...Read more

No, but: Intimate contact with someone who has herpes and is actively shedding the virus can result in transmission of the virus and a new infection in the recipient. Someone could certainly contract the virus during kissing of any sort, but not everyone who is french kissing gets herpes. ...Read more
No risk: Possible? Maybe, at least theoretically. But if so, it is extremely unlikely. Of the milliions of people infected worldwide in the 30+ years of hte known HIV/AIDS epidemic, none are known to have been acquired by kissing. Among other things, saliva kills HIV -- which is one reason why oral sex also carries little or no risk of HIV. ...Read more

This is a low probability route of infection as compared to unprotected sex, but it is at least theoretically possible. I'm not aware of any case reports of such transmission. ...Read more

Zero; very low: You won't get it from kissing. The risk from oral sex with the receiving partner being a woman has historically been considered zero. The risk if the recipient is a man is also very low -- studies vary, with some having no transmission in a large cohort with many acts & partners -- you're still wise to have him slip a condom on. ...Read more
