Dear Dr, here is the thing: I spent a year living with other two students. Because of the easiness to use stuff, I always put my toothbrush and shampoo in the bathroom we shared. Yesterday, I randomly knew online sharing toothbrush could be a risk of transmission of HIV. I didn't know if they ever used my toothbrush. I moved out of that place last week. Should I get a test three months later? Cheers.

No. This does not transmit HIV.
