Response from Mr. Glenn
Thank you for question,
You've had to ask repeatedly because this is the kind of situation that has been answered repeatedly in our forums (please read through our archives).
There is no risk at all in what you're talking about for many many reasons. Foremost is that HIV has to leave someone's body and go directly/immediately inside of yours. None of that could've happened in the case you describe.
Hope this helps,
