Hello, Thnx to contact us. If I am your treating doctor I would like to advice you that sexual exposure and blood transfusion is one mode of infecting with HIV there are other modes also by which you may be infected. If you are IV drug user, if you born to HIV positive mother, If you received cut from barbers blade which is preveiously used for the hiv positive person. This are the probable reason by which you may be infected. If you have anything else to ask please contact me. Thanx. Dr. Arun Tank
