Hi The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you, as long as there were no other types of exposure during that 3 month period, if so then the timing starts over again.
The type of exposure you experienced does carry a low risk of HIV transmission.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
