i had a closed mouth kissing with a high risk category girl some seven weeks back. i even licked her breasts which were not lactating and then i rubbed her vagina with my palm which i removed after it got moist. i did not have any sexual intercourse with her. i have noticed a light reddish patch on tongue. How worried should i be? should i get tested for HIV?

Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in.

The act described is low risk.

You shouldnt be too worried but you must certainly be cautious in the future.

As it has already been seven weeks, it is best to get an HIV ELISA test done.
There is no harm in taking the test. Think of it as just a routine blood test.
You will get the report within 2-3 hours.

We will be sure then.

Also consider getting yourself tested for Hepatitis B and C.

I hope I have answered your query.

If there is anything else. please do not hesitate to ask me

Thanks
