Response from Ms. Southall
Hi, From what you describe you are both OK and there is no need to worry about getting HIV from the exposure that occurred two years ago. Here is the standard for HIV tests, whether oral swab or blood are very accurate at 28 days, and conclusive at 90 days. However, when someone has had a known exposure to someone with HIV, you could perform a six month test, just to be extra cautious.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
