CAN I KISS MY HIV+ MAN?

C

Dear Lira

I AM a 22-year-old woman who is in a relationship with an HIV-positive man.

We used to shower each other with affection, but since he revealed his status a lot of things changed for me.

I am scared to use the same utensils as him and kissing has become a challenge. Can HIV be transmitted through kissing?
Miss

Fight your fear with knowledge.

Saliva doesn’t transmit HIV!

HIV lives in blood, as well as in vaginal and seminal fluid.

This is why it is important to use a dental dam or condom when you have oral sex.
