What are the chances of HIV infection?

I had gotten a blood test when I was 21 and it came back that I had hep b then they had told me to take a HIV test to make sure I didnt have it. I was scared at the time and I never had taken the hiv test and I never had been sick from the heb b either. Now I'm 31 what are my chances that I have had HIV for 10 years and haven't got ill just 2 flus in the winter time.

chances are low but it happens for few times that hiv virus remain longtime in your body without produce any symptoms. because you have very good immunity level. and nothing harm in doing hiv test once. go for it and make sure that you are not suffering from that.
