Response from Mr. Cordova
HIV is not readily transmitted though casual contact such as sharing drink-ware with an HIV positive person. It sounds like there were extenuating circumstances in this case i.e. the blood in the cup, and your bleeding gums.
You can go in for an antibody test at 90 days, with an initial test at 28 days if you wish. I am confident your result will be negative from this incident.
