    You're probably fine. If you have a cut or abrasion on your lips or inside your mouth you should get some blood work done to make sure. Also, ask the person about it. If they don't have anything dangerous, they won't be offended, and if they do then it's worth being direct to know about it.
    Good intentions are not enough.

    This was posted almost three days ago and you're not dead. I saw you posting today, or at least I saw your posts, I didn't actually see you posting. That'd just be scary.

    Go get some blood drawn, why not. I seriously doubt you caught anything, but if it's going to be on your mind, may as well put your concerns to rest.

    If you are still worried, I'd recommend the rapid saliva HIV test, if that is what you are most worried about, and it takes 6 weeks after exposure (i think) to develop antibodies which would be detected on the test. Hep B and Hep C, I'm not sure, you'd have to google it or call the health dept.

    Don't be so rough next time. Geez.

    Go a physician or urgent care, and they'll know what and when to test.

    I was reading somewhere online that swallowing blood isn't all that bad because the saliva kills the virus HIV is usually sexually transmitted I still haven't gotten tested. I'm going to go do a regular physical soon though.

    I wasn't really being rough just trying to be technical by using my head to grab his arm (which blood on it from a cut).

    HIV isn't really a risk in this situation. Unless you particularly had open ulcers or cuts in your mouth/lips. swallowing blood isn't really an issue, its if it gets into your bloodstream. Hep is more of a risk as is transferred much more easily.
    To be honest you are most likely fine, so i wouldnt be overly concerned. Maybe go to the STI clinic whenever you get round to it?

    Oh the joy of contact sports and getting covered in other peoples blood! Got to love the game!
