Thanks for your query.

The chances of acquiring HIV occurs in 2 cases:
1. If your partner is affected with HIV.
2. If there is any cut/raw surface in your organ through which the infection can spread.

If the above mentioned criteria doesn't hold true for your case, then there is no need to worry about getting HIV.

But in case the HIV status of your partner is not known, I recommend you to get p24 assay or PCR for HIV done.
These tests becomes positive within a week and are almost 100 % sensitive.
Even the presence of a single virus in the body can be detected by PCR.

If this test comes negative, you can be sure that you are safe.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
