Answer: 

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for you HIV/AIDS related health information.

It sounds like you are concerned about your risk of HIV transmission and the reliability of your test results.

Deep kissing is considered a No Risk activity. You cannot get HIV from kissing.

95% of infections are detectable within 4-6 weeks of exposure, and all HIV tests are considered conclusive at 3 months post exposure.

You had 2 tests. Both came back negative. Your 2nd test was 8 months after the exposure. For this event, this test is considered conclusive. You can trust your negative test result whereas it was taken more than 3 months after the event.

No further testing is needed for this event.

HIV presents itself differently in different people, therefore we cannot comment on the symptoms that you have been experiencing. HIV is not diagnosed based on symptoms. I would, however, recommend that you contact your health care provider to discuss your symptoms and develop a treatment plan. Symptoms can be indicative of other viral infections.

I would encourage you to check out the following resources about HIV:

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
