I read online that smoke bonds with saliva so by bonding it doesn't create HIV smoke?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
Nicotine is a vasoconstrictor which means that it closes off the vessels on the mouth when it comes into contact with the mucous membranes so it’s unlikely to allow for any absorption of the virus into the system.

If you are HIV positive and your smoking a cigarette with blood in your mouth dose it transmit ?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. SH, Doctor replied 3 months ago

HIV is not transmitted in this way because HIV cannot survive in saliva. Also, you would need sores in your mouth and significant amount of blood which is HIV infected going into your mouth and coming in contact with the sores in the mouth for it to be theoretically possible. There is not even a single documented case in literature of such transmission. So I can safely say that even though it may be theoretically possible but it has not happened practically in the real world.

The HIV is not transmitted by this mechanisms because HIV dies upon exposure to the air. This is why HIV is not transmitted by any inanimate object unless the inanimate object is protected from the air. An IV needle is able to transmit HIV because the blood in the hollow needle is not exposed to air. But any blood in the mouth that can get onto a cigarette would be exposed to air and would die.

When you have a bloody nose dose it get airborne with​ pathgons ?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 3 months ago

No, HIV is not airborne from a nosebleed with other pathogens, at least not as live virus that can be transmitted via airborne transmission, as it dies when it contacts the air.

I know but how many minutes dose it take?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 3 months ago

As I said above, HIV dies virtually immediately once it is exposed to air, and that it true for any location.

You do not need to ask for every body orifice and every bodily fluid, it dies virtually immediately once it is exposed to air for any scenario. That is why there has never been a case of transmission from toilet seats, etc.
