sounds crazy but this is happening ..... Please what can i do need help. do i have to go test .. With A month After This incident?

Response from Mr. Glenn

The only way that your situation could even make sense, is if this guy somehow had a person to get this HIV+ blood from. This sounds incredibly unlikely. What's ALSO unlikely is that he'd be able to draw that person's blood into the needle, run over to you, and pierce you (without waking you!) all before the HIV in the needle died. It's true that a needle can keep HIV alive longer because it's airtight, BUT it can't keep it alive for very much longer.

Doesn't really sound possible to me.

Hope this helps,
