Brief Answer:
The risk of getting the infection is very remote in your case.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome to HCM.

You don't know whether the girl was HIV positive or not and the result of ELISA after 2 months of exposure is negative then the risk of getting the infection is very remote or less.

You can go for repeat testing after 3 months of exposure to get the completely accurate status of your condition because the window period is from 15 days to 3 months in HIV.

Thank You
