Response from Dr. McGovern

Please refer HIV questions to the HIV forum.

No I would not consider you at risk.

I don't know which country you are living in, but in the US we recommend at least a one-time HIV test for all persons as part of routine medical care. You may want to consider this at your next routine medical visit.
