Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this experience. The risk is almost inexistent and very close to zero. There is no reason getting bothered. If it were this easy to contract HIV, the entire globe would have already been contaminated. However, protection during intercourse is always the best way to go.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
