Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Although H I V can be isolated typically in the low titers from SALIVA of a small proportion of infected individuals , there is no convincing evidence that saliva can transmit H IV infection either through kissing or through oral sex.
The most important thing I want to tell you that saliva contains endogenous ANTIVIRAL factors , so in my opinion you should not worry , but take care in future.
Good luck. Dr. HET
