Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
HIV transmission mainly through infected blood transfusion and unprotected sex.
through other ways its very rare less than .1%.
you don't have worry much, in your case its less than .001% chances of transmission.
or for your confirmation you can get test done after 3 months.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
