    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    but what happened i was drinking out a water bottle my bro had on the table maybe 20 mins or more after he did and started thinking what if he had hiv i just drank out of the same bottle,can i have gotten it like that

    No, you cannot get HIV from drinking out of the same bottle. You cannot get HIV from sharing the same eating utensils.

    Quite true. Spend a little time reading up on how HIV is passed from one individual to another.
