Hi You cannot get HIV from a massage. HIV transmission can only occur when there is a direct and prolonged exposure to body fluids, semen, vaginal fluid, blood or mother to child through breast feeding. This most commonly occurs through unprotected vaginal or anal sex and sharing of needles. Casual contact, sharing utensils, drinking after someone, etc are not way for HIV transmission to occur. If you go to this link HIV101 it will take you to our page that talks about the ways in which HIV is and is not transmitted. Your testing history shows you that as well. The guidelines for testing are to be tested 90 days after exposure and as long as there are no other exposures during this time the results are considered conclusive.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
