You have safe sex all the time. So chances of hiv are very low. So don't worry much about that. Don't think too much. Just go for testing once. It is very easy. They will draw few ml of blood only. It is very easy test. Once it comes out negative you will get relieved from mental stress.

Go for testing. Your results will come as negative.
