Thanks for your query.

The risk of HIV infection though negligible ,I would consider it would be wise to get yourself tested as you do not know the exact status of the women you were involved.

A better and sensitive test called HIV P24 antigen assay is available.It will rule out HIV to the root.Do go for the test and be clear of such thought.

Tridot is not very sensitive and do not detect HIV within 6 months of infection accurately.

I still feel the chances are very minimal, but its always good to be sure of it.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
